  • HTTP over 5985

    Hello,

    I am reading this:

    "...In Windows Server 2008 R2, by default, it communicates using only the HTTP protocol over TCP port 5985. For more detailed information about RSAT for Windows 8, we need to wait for the official announcement..."

    How can I allow http tcp 5985 through a firewall ?, just by allowing TCP 5985?, I don't get how can I tell to the firewall: http - tcp -5985.

      Thanks Wullieb.

      I meant just any firewall: iptables, or isa, or just any.

      My question was: You can specify TCP 5985 to a firewall, to be opened, but how can you say to a firewall to open http tcp 5985?

        It really depends on the make/model of firewall - the syntax will be different for each

          As far as I am aware, you just open TCP port 5958. This allows traffic on that port. The http part does not matter.

            HTTP uses TCP to communicate so by allowing TCP 5985 to communicate externally you are essentially allowing any application to connect via that protocol and port.

              So, you can say to a firewall:

              1-"Hey, block port tcp 5985."
              2-"Hey, block port tcp 5985 http." (I don't know how I could tell this to a firewall)

              Are both correct?

                No - the http is not required. You block or enable the port.

                  As blood says no.

                  All you need to allow is the port and the protocol, TCP or UDP.

                    "block any any http" or "allow any any http" is used where a firewall has a ruleset, or preconfigured service, called HTTP. It's usually configured to port 80, because that's the common port. So, as the others ave all said, just allow TCP
