running PsExec takes 20 seconds with windows firewall and 1 second with it disabled.
Exceptions added to firewall:
opened ports 135 and 445 (both tcp) as per http://jamesrayanderson.blogspot.co.uk/2010/04/psexec-and-ports.html
"allow app through firewall" choose "Remote Service Management"
ensure network is set to private
without these two it wont connect at all. Target machine running windows 10
during the 20 second wait it sits saying "Starting PsEXESVC on "
ok so a little wiresharking shows us that we need to also open another port which is being requested.
first time I ran this it was 49669 second time it was 49670
no idea why nor what range it will accept, any ideas?
