Hyper-V Manager blocked by Norton 360
I am running Microsoft Hyper-V Manager Windows 7 and Norton 360 126.96.36.199.
When trying to connect in Hyper-V Manager, I receive the error message: "RPC server unavailable. Unable to establish communication between ... [the two systems]." When I disable Norton 360 firewall, Hyper-V Manager connects and functions normally.
I saw another post where this issue was resolved on a system with Windows Vista and Norton 360 v3; however, it does not work for my newer versions.
Here is the resolution that DOES NOT WORK:
You may have to open Port 135 for RPC, and change the access for the following executable files in the Program Rules to Allow all communications:
C:\Windows\System32\wbem\unsecapp.exe C:\Windows\System32\WUDPhost.exe C:\Program Files\hyper-v\vmconnect.exe
- Port 135 is open
- There is already an exception for vmconnect.exe
What do I need to do to make this work?
