Configure the Windows Firewall

When you start the Informatica Windows service, the machines where you install the Informatica clients cannot access the Service Manager in the Informatica domain. To allow the clients access to the Service Manager, you must configure the firewall to grant client machines access to the domain.
On the machine where you created the Informatica domain, add the client machines to the list of firewall exceptions.
  1. On the Windows Control Panel, open
    Windows Firewall
    .
  2. On the Windows Firewall window, click the
    Exceptions
    tab.
