WMI ports for firewall RRS feed

  • Question

  • I know this is an old topic but I couldn't find answer I'm looking for on existing posts. I can add exception on target windows box for WMI with pre-built WMI group in firewall exception list and that works too. But my specific problem is that my script queries WMI classes remotely and I want to know exact ports which need unblocking if intermediate firewall is in place (between box running my script and end windows box script is querying). Script runs on any linux box and uses wmic (WMI client) utility to query the windows boxes. Ens box I'm querying is Windows 2008(R2)/7/2003.

    I would appreciate if windows experts here can help me find out exact TCP/UDP ports which will go in intermediate firewall exception list.

    Thanks a ton in advance.
