PDM Windows Firewall Issue

Euan Foster

Hello all,

I have recently set up a server running windows server with PDM enterprise 2016 sp3 and a client on a laptop running Windows 10. On the server and laptop,m I have opened up ports 80, 20000, 30000, 40000 and 3030 as per the install manual.

Despite opening up all those previously mentioned ports, I am only able to connect to the server if the firewall on the server is taken completely offline. Anyone got any further suggestions? Or suggestions on how to troubleshot what is being blocked? I am currently at a loss with this.
