Sophos Enterprise Deployment failing
Posted on 2005-04-22
We have recently purchased Sophos Antivirus. I'm attempting to push out the clients to our domain. Working with tech support, they say that ports 8192, 8193, and 8194 need to be open. Ninety percent of our clients are imaged via Ghost. All machines (other than servers) are XP SP2 It seems that all clients setup via CD work fine. Same for servers. Our older computers (imaged by ghost) work fine as well. The bulk of machines are newer (also imaged via Ghost).
To be clear...
From any client (working or not) to the server: I can establish a telnet session on the 3 ports in question.
From the server to:
a. A working client: I can establish a telnet session on the 3 ports in question.
b. A non-working client (95% of our machines) I CANNOT establish a telnet session on the 3 ports in question.
From any client to a working client: I can establish a telnet session on the 3 ports in question.
The variable in this is the workstation. The server acts as constant. I do not believe the server is at issue. We do not have openmanage, firewall etc. If I manually install to the non-working machines, the progam installs and gets updates from the server just fine. It does not, however report in to the server, which is a great part of the value to me.
Each of the failed installs place a folder into the program files of the workstation. I'm installing as enterprise admin. Sophos is stumped....
