Forefront TMG - Firewall is blocking backup application

Hello,

I have a TMG 2010 server.  I am trying to configure backups on it, however the firewall is blocking the access to the agent.  How can I resolve this in TMG?

Thank you,

Chris

Allow the required port(s) to access the FTMG server.

Yeah... I'm assuming since I cannot access the Windows Firewall when TMG is installed that it must be done in TMG.  How?  Where?

lol - it has to work both ways else I end up asking the proverbial 20 questions. Let's start with the obvious ones.....

What ports does the backup software require opening?
If you don't know, open the FTMG gui, select logging and reporting, logging and click start query.
Try your backup, what do you see as being denied that comes from the backup server IP address?

Its port 2086.

OK (I'll assume it is TCP rather than UDP)
Open the GUI, select firewall policy.
In the far right window pane, select the toolbox and create a new protocol for tcp outbound port start - 2086, end - 2086
save that
Create a new allow access rule using your new user-defined protocol from internal to localhost and allow all users
Apply and lets retest again through the realtime viewer.
