Remote Support Ports

Hello All,

Does the Remote Support server still use port 135 to connect to remote hosts? Or does it also port 5985? Trying to figure out which ports I need to have opened on the firewalls.  Also the connection to the hosts originates solely from the server now right?

    Hi @James_Johnson

    Remote Support uses WMI ports so this includes port 135 but for more specific ports as it can use a range:

    HTTP: 5985

    HTTPS: 5986PowerShell Remoting/WinRM listen on these ports:

    HTTP: 5985

    HTTPS: 5986 

    Hope this helps!
