Configure Firewall Exceptions
By default, the IIS Web Management Service listens on TCP port 8172. If Windows Firewall is enabled on your web server, you'll need to create a new inbound rule to allow TCP traffic on port 8172 (all outbound traffic is permitted by default in Windows Firewall). If you use a third-party firewall, you'll need to create rules to allow traffic.
