Can I change ports in SEP 11

Created: 23 Sep 2012 | 5 comments

I recently upgraded couple of my win2003 SAV 10.x clients (behind the fiewall) to SEP 11 and now trying to connect/configure them to SEPM. they were working fine with sav client & symantec system center as firewall port 2967 was open. Now after upgrading/installing to SEP 11, new clients are not seen in SEPM 11. I work in very big comany and to get new firewall port open is a pain. Is it possible that I could modify SEP 11 client registry/settings to change its port to 2967 (which is already opened) . this way i can use same opened ports for SEP 11 too and don't have to go through the pain to request new ports open for SEP 11. I have 7 win2003 clients behind firewall . Is there any workaround like this ?  Thanks in advance

Hello,

It's a question when you're installing SEP 11 or SEP12, by default the communication port is 8014. Without communicating once your clients(for changing communication policy), there's no way known except re-installing manager and clients. You can change it when you're installing.

The port change needs to be done during the install. You would need to re-install to change this.

Hi,

Prior to an upgrade you should have clear picture about ports which SEP 11 uses.

Which Communication Ports does Symantec Endpoint Protection 11.0 use?

http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?pag...

Ports and Protocols to be allowed when using a proxy in a SEP environment.

http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH131843 

Second thing, you should have done an upgrade to SEP 12.1 instead of SEP 11.

Check this article:  http://bit.ly/JpDR3U

In current situation could you try to replace sylink.xml on new clients & check whether it works or not.
