I'm trying to get PST Station software working across the domain and have run into problems:
PST Station is a software that runs across the network collecting backing up PST file to a shared folder on a server.
The problem that i ran into was that when the Client software on all user's computer started for the first time triggered Windows firewall to prompt users to either ALLOW or BLOCK it. Of course they chose to BLOCK even after I specifically told them to ALLOW! Ugghh...
Since we have over 1200 computers across the US I need to find a way to fix this via GPO and since the software runs on ports 3833 and 3835, I've created an entry under
Default Domain Policy|Computer Condfiguration|Polices|Administrative Templates|Network|Network Connections|Windows Firewall|Domain Profile
Windows Firewall: Define inbound Port Exceptions
to ALLOW these two ports with the string under Define port exceptions:
3835:TCP:localsubnet,10.0.0.0/8:enabled:PSTClient - Port 3835
3833:TCP:localsubnet,10.0.0.0/8:enabled:PSTClient - Port 3833
That works fine for the most part because the port is by all means OPEN (tested with Telnet).
The trouble that remains is the stupid software gets hung because on those computers that have initially selected to "BLOCK" still have the entries listed in their Windows Firewall, matter of fact it has both ALLOW Port 3833 abd 3835 and BLOCK Port 3833 abd 3835
My question is HOW do I remove the blocked ones from the windows firewall?
