I am trying to implement KMS licensing for Win 7 stations.
I have installed KMS host on Win 2008 R2 64 bit server and everything is up and running.
The only problem that I am facing is that there is no connection between host and Win 7 clients.
Only if I stop Win 7 FW then I have proper connection.
My question is what are the recommendations to set up properly connection between KMS host and Win 7 clients.
I am working in the domain environment.

Probably TCP port 1688 needs opening on the firewall on the clients.

Full details, plus things like DNS SRV records here:

DNS SRV record has been created during the KMS host installation.
How can I open TCP port 1688 for all Win 7 clients through GPO?
How can I enable WMI for all Win 7 clients through GPO?
