Opening Port Communication through the Windows Firewall or a Third-party Firewall
- On the Hyper-V server, ensure that the
firewall allows communication through port 135 and test the Hyper-V
For details about opening ports, refer to your firewall documentation.
- If the connection to the Hyper-V server is unsuccessful,
configure WMI to use a fixed port.
For details on Setting Up a Fixed Port for WMI, refer to:
- Open ports 135 and the newly created fixed port (24158) for communication through the firewall.
- Test the Hyper-V connection again.
