I need to establish remote WMI Connections from a Windows Server 2008 with static port.

I know that WMI calls use port 135 and then chooses a random port, what I would like to know is if WMI can be set to use a static port?

Yes I have already read THIS: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb219447(VS.85).aspx

But I don't want do it on all clients, so I'm looking for a server-side solution, not client solution.

Well, since you have a client-side challenge, you are most likely going to need a client-side solution, whether you want to or not. –  Mathias R. Jessen Dec 17 '12 at 11:40
as i said before i'm looking for server side solution!!!i'm looking for a way to force clients negotiate with server on a specific port that i set from server!!!! for example connect throw 135 and respond on 12345 TCP, Any IDEA??? –  MAYSAM GAMINI Dec 17 '12 at 13:15
