  • does the deployment of SCCM 2012 Client by GPO will require file and printer sharing to be allowed via firewall ? and why ? GPO deployment uses file shares to locate the packages !

  • File and printer sharing is only needed for client push, not for GPO deployments.

  • GPO installation doesn't require any firewall port access.....u need to open only port 80 for communication to site server...

  • For info on GPO and other client deployment methods have a look here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg682191.aspx

    Information on Firewall and Port settings for clients can be found here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg682180.aspx

    The last link also contains some more info on ports used during client deployment.

  • Thanks Torsten for the information. I get confused that the GPO software deployment is by folder share so it uses file share protocol ...but I found that this is wrong.
