    Hello fellow SCOM enthusiasts, I need some clarity regarding the information between how Firewall rules work between agents in the DMZ/secured network, Gateway servers and onwards to the Management Server.

    Its available in multiple places that you would need uni-directional connectivity between the Agent to the Gateway server on Port 5723, then on the firewall Unidirectional to the Management Servers inĀ  your trusted network.

    The million $ question is if the traffic is permitted uni-directional how come the MPs get sent to the Gateway and onwards to the SCOM agents in the DMZ? Firewall should not be permitting traffic inbound through the Firewall as no rule is specified except 5723 outbound… then how come the agents get the MPs and are able to update the rules and monitorsĀ specified?

    Any help would be highly appreciated.
