  • hi Robert,

    VAMT is likely using WMI port numbers which is as follows:

    static RPC : TCP port 135

    Dynamic range RPC: TCP 41952 - TCP 65535

    is that what you are looking for?

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    We could check the blog below about VAMT 3.1-implementing and activating.

    http://www.terminalworks.com/blog/post/2015/12/13/volume-activation-management-tool-3-1-implementing-and-activating

    Please Note: Since the website is not hosted by Microsoft, the link may change without notice. Microsoft does not guarantee the accuracy of this information.

    In certain scenarios, only a limited set of Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) ports are allowed through a hardware firewall. Administrators must ensure that WMI (which relies on Remote Procedure Call (RPC) over TCP/IP) is allowed through these types of firewalls. By default, the WMI port is a dynamically allocated random port above 1024. The following Microsoft knowledge article discusses how administrators can limit the range of dynamically allocated ports.

    Hope it will be helpful to you

  • Hi,

    Configuring the Windows Firewall to allow VAMT access

    Enable the VAMT to access client computers using the Windows Firewall Control Panel:

    1. Open Control Panel and double-click System and Security.

    2. Click Windows Firewall.

    3. Click Allow a program or feature through Windows Firewall.

    4. Click the Change settings option.

    5. Select the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) checkbox.

    6. Click OK.

    Warning

    By default, Windows Firewall Exceptions only apply to traffic originating on the local subnet. To expand the exception to apply to multiple subnets, you need to change the exception settings in the Windows Firewall with Advanced Security, as described below.
