SCCM 2016 – Firewall configuration

I know some organisations are very strict to what goes in their environment. Typically you have ports open when Servers are not in production, so you can have your windows firewall disabled for the setup.

But reality is once it is in production, you will have to fine tune to minimum security settings allowed.

If you require, run this following commands in elevated command line or Powershell to configure the Powershell on required server

netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name=“SQL Server” dir=in action=allow protocol=TCP localport=1433
netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name=“SQL Admin Connection” dir=in action=allow protocol=TCP localport=1434
netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name=“SQL Service Broker” dir=in action=allow protocol=TCP localport=4022
netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name=“SQL Debugger/RPC” dir=in action=allow protocol=TCP localport=135
netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name=“Analysis Services” dir=in action=allow protocol=TCP localport=2383
netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name=“SQL Browser” dir=in action=allow protocol=TCP localport=2382
netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name=“HTTP” dir=in action=allow protocol=TCP localport=80
netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name=“SSL” dir=in action=allow protocol=TCP localport=443
netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name=“SQL Browser” dir=in action=allow protocol=TCP localport=1434
netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name=“ICMP Allow incoming V4 echo request” protocol=icmpv4:8,any dir=in action=allow
