If the Windows firewall is enabled it will cause issues to Remote Push installations and upgrades of Windows clients/servers. This happens when the installservice.exe, which is registered and started as a service from the Omniback share, is not allowed to bypass the firewall.
Automatic registration with the Windows Firewall requires the omnirc option OB2FWPASSTHRU=1 to be defined on the Windows Installation Server, from which the installation is performed. Instead of forcing each user to define this omnirc option, it should be enabled by default.
The Windows firewall is a standard component since Windows 2003 and has become quite popular. Please change OB2FWPASSTHRU to 1 by default to improve the overall client deployment experience for new and existing users.
