Hi,
WPP is not aware of the firewall you are using. It always uses the same Protocols/Ports. You need to refer to Fortigate's documentation to set the policy.
If another Fortigate's user reads this post, he may help you to set it properly.

Someone in the forums on here commented on these ports for use with WPP for EG. Reporting / Send a restart comand / force to install is this correct ? But wasn't clear with the answer if they have any benefits to adding them in addition to WPP use Port 80, 443, 8530 and 8531.



SMB, TCP Port 445 ?
MSRPC, TCP Port 135 ?
DCOM, TCP Port .......?
WMI, TCP Port .......?

Ports 80, 443, 8530 and 8531 are used by WPP to communicate with you Wsus server (only one of this port is used). The port used depend of your Wsus configuration.
Wpp can't work without these ports.

Other ports, are used for extra features like sending command. it's not mandadory to open it in your firewall.
