Connect to Windows Admin Center via LAN
Just started testing the Windows Admin Center for a potential server environment. I installed the WAC for now on a Windows 10 VM in hyperV. The port configured for the portal is the default one which is 6516. On the VM the access via browser “localhost:6516” works perfect. However when I try to access the WAC on another machine in the LAN via local IP and then the port it complains about the connection has been reset… I allowed the traffic for in and out bound for port 6516 in the windows firewall.
Does anyone know why it’s preventing me from access the WAC of a Win10 client on the same LAN?
I tried the same with a Win Server 2019 and if I use the DNS that it provides by default I could access it from another client on the LAN… When I tried to access it through the IP I also got an error that it wouldn’t connect… But I can’t remember which pport it used there…
Your Answers are appreaciated!
I got the following answer on reddit regarding accessing the Windows Admin Center App from another client through the LAN:
They’re basically saying that you can’t access the WAC App through the LAN (blocked by MS intentionally)… Can anyone confirm if that’s actually true?
