Removing the Firewall Configuration of a Client Computer

You can remove the firewall settings of a client computer.

Procedure

  1. From the CommCell Browser, right-click the Client and then click Properties.
  2. In the Client Computer Properties dialog box, click Advanced.
  3. Click the Firewall Configuration tab.
  4. Clear the Configure Firewall Settings option and click OK.
  5. Again, access the Firewall Configuration tab of the client, and then click the Summary tab.

    Verify whether the client computer has any connections from other clients. If it does, write down the names of those clients.

    Also, check whether the firewall properties are inherited from any client group by looking at the Configure Firewall Settings check box. If firewall is inherited, then there will be a note indicating this next to the check box.

  6. If connections were found in Step 5, locate each client and do this:
    1. Right-click the Client and click Properties.
    2. In the properties dialog box, click Advanced.
    3. Click the Firewall Configuration tab.
    4. Select the client whose firewall settings were removed and click Delete. Click Yes from the Delete dialog box.
    5. Click OK.

    If the client whose firewall settings you removed was inheriting the firewall from a client group, remove the client from that client group this way:

    1. Right-click the Client_Group and click Properties.
    2. Click the Firewall Configuration tab.
    3. Select the client whose firewall settings were removed and click Delete. Click Yes from the Delete dialog box.
    4. Click OK.
  7. Right-click the Client and then click All Tasks > Push Firewall Configuration.
  8. From the <Software Install Directory>/Base folder, remove the fwconfiginstall.txt file, if it exists.
  9. From the same folder, remove all configurations defined in the fwconfiglocal.txt file, if any.
