    Posted 01-23-2019 08:18 AM

    I have  build a new server to  host the CMCNE as the old server is EOW. 

    The configuration completed succesfully.  I am able to launch Fabric Insight Portal from the new server. But am unable to lauch from any other server or desktop.  Like am able to open locally , not globally.

     

    Do we need to configure any other settings to launch the Fabric Insight Portal from my desktop / any other server. ?

    Thanks for  the response. 

     

    My question is, 

     

    -- I can launch the fabric insight portal from the server I hosted the CMCNE ( Windows Server)

    -- I  am not able to  launch the Fabric insight portal from my desktop. something is preventing the communication . Or I doubt I miss some configuration steps, which will help to launch the GUI from any desktop with in the network.

    I guess that firewall is blocking ports. Because of that you may reach FI only locally.

    yes, you are right. the Firewall was the problem. By default it was showing 80 and 443 is  open and listening. but when I did a test , it was failing. 

     

    Starting portqry.exe -n 10.195.1.153 -e 443 -p TCP ...


    Querying target system called:

    10.195.1.153

    Attempting to resolve IP address to a name...


    IP address resolved to **filtered**.**filtered**.**filtered**.com

    querying...

    TCP port 443 (https service): FILTERED
    portqry.exe -n 10.195.1.153 -e 443 -p TCP exits with return code 0x00000002.

     

    So we need to add the firewall rule . 

    rem Open TCP Port 443 inbound and outbound
    netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name="Zoo TCP Port 443" dir=in action=allow protocol=TCP localport=443
    netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name="Zoo TCP Port 443" dir=out action=allow protocol=TCP localport=443
