Hello all,

Here is my problem in detail,

I have to get data from remote server to local server. currently i am working on local server trying to connect to the remote server through php script. but rempte server is blocked due to security reasons.

I am the admin for the database in remote server and admin in local server too. But I could not unblock the firewall.

I am asked to make a hole to the remote server so that I can pull the data from it through my local machine.

I tried possible stuff like
1) Add a port in remote machine to give access to local server to fecth. ( group policy denied)
2) I tried
netsh firewall set icmpsetting type =All mode =Enable in remote server command prompt and the reply was ok.
but i tried to connect there is no effect

PS. Remoter server is windows machine
local server is linux machine

any help is appreciated

look into the linux machine, are you running smb?
that is how you communicate with windows servers
perhaps re-post in the linux section


on your remote server go to the data base,
-on standard menu,
-go to tools
-click edit source code you will see the security code delete it then the fire wall will unblock.
