not connecting

We had a power outage over the weekend and everything is working again except for the GP clients. After they log on, it hangs and eventually comes up with an unknown error. The reason for that is because the firewall in server 2008R2. I have GP traffic allowed on the server. If I turn the firewall off, GP client connects without a problem. I am using the domain networks location settings in the firewall. Does anyone knows why the firewall is blocking GP?

RE: not connecting


Can you able to connect GP SQL server using ODBC from gp client machine?

I think it is not depend on GP. You SQL server port may be blocked in firewall..


RE: not connecting

How can I check the port for SQL in the firewall? I would like to check that before I turn the firewall back on because if that's not the problem, everyone will be down again. Thanks
