Commonly when I am installing Tentacle, I have to add an inbound rule to let port 10933 through windows firewall. It would be nice if this was done in the install or using the Tentacle Tools. This would have to be an optional step for those who want to manage it themselves. FYI You can access windows firewall via the netsh tool.

Thanks for the suggestion, I’ve turned it into a backlog item:


win 2008 r2
netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name=“Octopus Tentacle” dir=in action=allow protocol=TCP localport=10933 profile=domain

If you’re using WiX, you can use the Firewall Extension
