Firewall exceptions (BigFix scenario)
Some of the fixlets require files and updates from external fixlet sites that are downloaded over the Internet. To ensure that they can be automatically downloaded by the BigFix® server, relevant web addresses must be accessible from the computer where the server is installed. Add those addresses as firewall exceptions and ensure that they are accessible to the proxy server if you are using it.
The HTTP port 80 must be open for communication.
If the computer cannot access the Internet or you do not want to open the required port on that computer, you need to periodically use the Airgap tool to download the required files. In this case, the web addresses must be accessible through the required port from the computer with the Internet access on which you are gathering site content. For more information, see: Updating the fixlet site.
- HTTP port 80
- HTTPS port 443
