Ports used by SCCM Remote Tools

Ports used by SCCM Remote Tools In our organization, System Center Configuration Manager is used to distribute software, but now we have decided to use the functions of this system to implement the functions of remote management of client PCs (which is very much required by Helpdesk). However, it is worth considering that in order for the remote control function to work (the utility is called SCCM Remote Tools), you need to open a number of ports on both network equipment and Windows Firewall. Remote Tools uses the following ports: TCP port 135 TCP / UDP port 2701 TCP / UDP port 2702 The most correct way in a domain environment would be to propagate these exceptions in Windows Firewall using Group Policy.

How to configure Windows Update through a proxy server

How to configure Windows Update through a proxy server It is not a secret for anyone that in the event that your PC running Microsoft OS is connected to the Internet using a proxy server, the Windows Update service doesn’t work by default. This note is about how you can configure the Windows Update system on a PC behind a proxy server. Windows Update through a proxy The Windows Update service can use an HTTP proxy server. However, specifying the proxy server in the Windows Internet Explorer settings is not enough for the update service to work through the proxy. The fact is that Windows Update uses Windows HTTP Services (WinHTTP) to look for updates, and BITS is used to download updates. The Windows Update service is configured by default so that it always tries to access the Microsoft update server directly, without using a proxy server, even if it is specified in Internet Explorer settings. The configuration is performed using the following command: netsh winhttp set proxy After you run this command, your Windows 7 OS will be updated, even when you are behind a proxy server. Alternatively, if you want to take proxy settings from Internet Explorer, you can use the command: netsh winhttp import proxy source = ie As an option, it is also possible that you need to redirect all traffic except for Microsoft traffic...
