  • To configure the file transfer port, in the Ghost Solution Suite console, to use a specific port, navigate to Tools->Options->Global tab. Check Client/Server file transfer port check-box and set the dedicated port to 403.
  • TCP port 402 will also need to be enabled on the client firewall. Additional ports may need to be enabled client-side for file transfer and RDP.
