Windows Slave - Firewall issue

tim.arant

Hi All,

I am attempting to create a Windows Slave ( controlled via Windows Service ) on a box that has a FireWall.

I need to know what information to provide to our Systems department so that they can allow Hudson to access this Slave.

How does Hudson access a Windows Slave using a Service?

Does it access via TCP/IP ports?

Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

If you are referring to
http://wiki.hudson-ci.org/display/HUDSON/Distributed+builds#Distributedbuilds-HavemasterlaunchslaveagentonWindows
, it uses DCOM, as the documentation says. DCOM is often problematic
for port-based firewalls, so if that's your problem, you need to start
a slave in a different way.

For example, if you use it as JNLP slaves and install that as a
service, slaves need not have any TCP/IP port opened --- it initiates
a connection to the master.
