Hi Experts,

For my monitoring I have to reach some clients with XP.
I have mentioned the firewall is activated.
With a netsh script I know how to switch the firewall off.

But I cannot find the command to open the ports for remote administration and WMI.
Can you help me please?

The problem here is that you can't get through the firewall to execute any commands to modify the firewall - if you think about it any firewall that allowed you to do this would be pretty useless!

I found it and did it with psexec:
psexec \\HOSTNAME netsh advfirewall firewall set rule group="Windows-Remoteverwaltung" new enable=yes

psexec \\HOSTNAME netsh advfirewall firewall set rule group="Windows-Verwaltungsinstrumentation (WMI)" new enable=yes

For XP:
psexec \\HOSTNAME -user SEPP -p PASS netsh firewall show opmode

psexec \\HOSTNAME -user SEPP -p PASS netsh firewall set opmode disable
