Firewall traffic rules not enough for WinRM
I am trying to connect with WinRM between two Windows 10 (build 1607) with Powershell 2.0. I have everything setup and everything works fine with Norton Security Smart Firewall (NSSF) deactivated. I do not know, however, how to configure it to work together with Smart Firewall.
WinRM uses port 5985-5986 for communication and these are successfully forwarded from my router. No other ports are forwarded, WinRM can therefor not use any other port for communication.
I have added two traffic rules to NSSF. One for local and one for distant communications. Both opens up port 5985-5986 for to and from all computers with all protocols. Still, with these two rules (local+distant), I can not establish a connection with NSSF activated.
EDIT: The exception was only added to one of two Norton Secured computers. Rule has to be added to both computers.
