Re: [HTCondor-users] HTCondor 8.0.3 on Windows workers: firewall rules?

kbdd communicates with the local startd, so unless your firewall is
even blocking attempts to connect back to the host, you shouldn't need
it. I believe procd and preen are in the same position so whether you
add them depends on how strict the firewall is. condor_starter I think
you will want to add to the firewall exceptions list. condor_dagman if
I recall correctly runs on the submit node. I don't recall the last
time a successful usage of vm-gahp on Windows was done here at UW, so
I'll let others comment. For any others you have questions on, I'd
suggest looking in the manual, their responsibilities are for the most
part clearly spelled out. Not that many processes end up needing to be
run on Windows on an execute node. On the other hand, HTCondor would
take care of the firewall settings if you were using the default
Windows firewall.
