Configuring a Local Firewall

If you have defined an active firewall on the computer where you are installing the BigFix server, you can decide to configure this firewall during the BigFix server installation in one of the following ways:

  • During an interactive installation, the installation programs detects if a local firewall is active and you can specify if you want to configure it for the BigFix server.
  • During a silent installation, you can set CONF_FIREWALL=YES in the response file to require the firewall configuration. For more information, see Silent installation.
When you specify to configure the firewall, open the following two ports:
  • Port 52311 for UDP and TCP/IP
  • Port 8083 for Web Reports and TCP/IP
