Intel MPI 4 - Port Issues on secondary smpd process

Intel MPI 4 - Port Issues on secondary smpd process

Hi,

I have got the intel mpi working when I have the firewalls turned off, however, when I turn on firewalls I have an issue;

I have unblocked port 8678 on both machines and the request is received on the second machine, however another smpd process is started which uses a different port each time and it is this port this is being block.

Does anyone know how to keep this fixed with a setting or something. Below is the debug information:

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

I have worked out the above problem for anyone interesteded.

BAsically all you need to do is add the smpd.exe on each host machine to the program exceptions in the windows firewall.

Thanks, Mark, for sharing with us.
