which ports I need to open to get push installation working on a remote server?

    As in a domain setup those ports are usually open I think you are in a small environment?!
    If so, you have no GPO to disable that and you need to go to each host anyway. Thus using an exported MSI-package is the faster option.

    OTOH if you think about pushing an UPDATE to an already running F-Secure installation you better look into a policy based update. PUSH is only useful for first-time-rollout.

    I think the FSCS version 14 .MSI-based distribution method is less practical then FSCS12/13 used to be, as keycode cannot be inserted. I think F-Secure should work on a method which creates a properly structured MSI file, without the need for end-user tweaking.


    On the other hand, the Push-based method is difficult to authorize in the Windows 10 era: remote registry service must be running, admin$ network share must be available, classic sharing model must be enabled (these need a regedit), firewall ports must be open, user account password reqs must be met, etc.
