SCOM firewall port configurations

Firewall Config

The Operations Manager agent will initiate a connection over port 5723 to the management server, pulling down configuration data and those management pack rules which apply to this agent and sending back both heartbeat and performance data.

Once a firewall connection has been opened one way then communication between the 2 hosts can be initiated freely bi-directionally.

But if there is no established connection and one side tries to *initiate* communication…..that will be blocked by the firewall if you don’t have rules going both ways allowing bi-directional communication.
