Allowing Dcom And Wmi


I'm running a program where I need to set rules, here's how to set the rules using the Windows firewall:

netsh advfirewall firewall add rule dir=in name="DCOM" program=%systemroot%\system32\svchost.exe service=rpcss action=allow protocol=TCP localport=135

netsh advfirewall firewall add rule dir=in name ="WMI" program=%systemroot%\system32\svchost.exe service=winmgmt action = allow protocol=TCP localport=any

netsh advfirewall firewall add rule dir=in name ="UnsecApp" program=%systemroot%\system32\wbem\unsecapp.exe action=allow

netsh advfirewall firewall add rule dir=out name ="WMI_OUT" program=%systemroot%\system32\svchost.exe service=winmgmt action=allow protocol=TCP localport=any

How do I set the equivalent in Bitdefender 2016? I see where you can add rules, but I don't see how you can add services such as these.




  • Hi paulj1x,

    I also tried to find cli commands and switches for BD but with no success so far.

    IT would be very nice if BD team would upload a list of CLI commands and switches...

    How did you solved the problem?

    Unfortunatelly the only thing that comes to my mind in your situation (when DCOM, WMI and similiar services are required) is to combine Windows firewall with Bitdefender AV...but I`m aware that it`s not the best solution...
