Hi everyone

I need to get the SCCM 2007 client running on a few Vista machines in my organisation.

Does anyone know the basic firewall configurations in terms of which Ports should be allowed for inbound and outbound traffic?

If anyone has a suitable script which can do it , even better.

Thanks for the hlep.

    In our company we are running Windows 2008 PDC's and you easy distribute Firewall settings here.
    Almost all data the SCCM Site server transmit is Http/https & rpc. And some SMB here and there.

    Check this page as well for the necessary ports to your SCCM Configuration, if you'd like that much detailed information. But I recommend using GPO to distribute the firewall policy for Vista clients.
