Firewall settings needed for Dynamics AX installation

In case, you use Windows Firewall to protect your computers, for Microsoft Dynamics AX components to function, you must use the settings shown in the below table.

For more information about Windows Firewall, refer to the Windows documentation

ComponentComputerFirewall SettingNotes
SetupAnyAllow outbound HTTP connections To access the documentation that is available from the Setup wizard, you must be able to connect to the Internet from the computer where you are running Setup.
Database or Model StoreDatabase ServerExclude the port used by SQL Server (1433 by default) For more information, refer to the SQL Server documentation.
Application Object Server (AOS)AOS Server
  • Exclude the TCP/IP port used by the AOS (2712 by default)
Setup automatically creates the inbound rule "Dynamics AX 6.0 -MicrosoftDynamicsAX (RPC)" for the TCP/IP port.
  • Exclude the services WSDL port used by the AOS (8101 by default)
Setup automatically creates the inbound rule "Dynamics AX 6.0 -MicrosoftDynamicsAX (WSDL)" for the WSDL port.
  • Exclude the services endpoint port used by the AOS (8201 by default)
Setup automatically creates the inbound rule "Dynamics AX 6.0 -MicrosoftDynamicsAX (NetTCP)" for the services endpoint port.
Windows Firewall must be enabled on the computer. Each AOS instance must use a different port number. NOTE: By default, each time you install an additional AOS instance on a computer, the TCP/IP port number and the Services endpoint port numbers increment by one. For example, the second AOS instance on a computer would be assigned to TCP/IP port 2713 by default.
ClientClient WorkstationExclude Ax32.exe. The client uses a TCP port to connect to the AOS.
