Windows 10 Firewall configuration for Ansys 2021 R1 and RSM for HPC configuration
I have a set of Windows 10 computers all running AEDT 2021 R1 with RSM and the Intel MPI. I have successfully solved a set of model variations in a distributed manner between all of these computers, with one of them acting a a head node and the rest as compute nodes, but I have done so by disabling the Private firewall on all computers (and setting their common network as a private network).
I would like to restore the firewall in general, but I believe I need to make some firewall exceptions in order for this HPC configuration to continue to function.
Can you tell me which processes need firewall exceptions in order for this HPC configuration to work with the firewalls up?
