How to do tcp port sharing in HPC server R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I found this article on tcp port sharing in windows server 2008 r2, but there is no application server role in HPC server (at least it isn't showing up in my choices).  So how do I enable tcp port sharing?

  • Hi Bob,

    Windows Server 2008 R2, HPC Edition does offer Net.Tcp Port Sharing Service which you can get more information using the link below:

    To enable the Net.TCP Port Sharing Service using MMC

    1. From the Start menu, open the Services Management Console either by opening a Command Prompt window and typing services.msc or by opening Run and typing services.msc into the Open box.

    2. In the Name column of the list of services, right-click the Net.Tcp Port Sharing Service, and select Properties from the menu.

    3. To enable the manual start-up of the service, in the Properties window select the General tab, and in the Startup type box select Manual, and then click Apply.

    4. To start the service, in the Service status area, click the Start button. The service status should now display "Started".

    5. To return to the list of services, click the OK, and exit the MMC Console.

    Unfortunately Application Server role is not offered in the Windows Server 2008 R2, HPC Edition. So to get the if you need other components of Application Server you will need to move to a different edition of 2008 R2. To find out which SKU provide the Application Role please click on the link below:
