The following procedures apply to a Windows Firewall configuration. If Windows Firewall is enabled on the DPM server when you install DPM, DPM Setup configures the firewall automatically. For more information about configuring other firewall software, consult the firewall documentation.

To configure Windows Firewall on a DPM server

  1. In Control Panel, click Windows Firewall.

  2. On the General tab, verify that Windows Firewall is turned on, and then verify that the Don’t allow exceptions check box is clear.

  3. On the Exceptions tab, do the following:

    1. Click Add Program, click Browse, and then navigate to <drive letter>:\Program Files\Microsoft DPM\DPM\bin.

    2. Select Msdpm.exe, click Open, and then click OK.

    3. On the Exceptions tab, click Add Program, click Browse, and navigate to <drive letter>:\Program Files\Microsoft DPM\DPM\bin.

    4. Select Dpmra.exe, click Open, and then click OK.

  4. Click Add Port, type any name you want for the port in the Name box, type 135 in the Port number box, verify that TCP is specified as the protocol, and then click OK to close the Add a Port dialog box.

  5. Click OK to close the Windows Firewall dialog box.
