Firewall exceptions

Some of the fixlets require that the BigFix server connects to the Internet and downloads necessary files and updates. To ensure that they can be downloaded, relevant web addresses must be accessible from the computer where the server is installed. Add those addresses as firewall exceptions and ensure that they are accessible to the proxy server if you are using it.

Ensure that the following web addresses are accessible from the computer where the BigFix server is installed

  • esync.bigfix.com
  • gatherer.bigfix.com
  • software.bigfix.com
  • support.bigfix.com
  • sync.bigfix.com

The HTTP port 80 must be open for communication.

All-in-One installation only. If the server on which you are performing the All-in-One installation cannot access the Internet, ensure that the following web address is accessible from the computer where the generate license script or file is run from. For more information, see: Optional: Creating the license authorization file.
  • tem.flexnetoperations.com
Note: If the server on which you are performing the All-in-One installation can access the Internet, this exception is not needed because the license files will be created during the installation.
The HTTPS port 443 must be open for communication.
Important: This port is required only during installation, after installation it is no longer required to be open.
