Windows 7: non-privileged users cannot open a TCP connection
are moving from xp to 7 on our domain with AD on Windows Server 2008 R2. The problem is that the programs run by normal users are unable to open TCP ports. With admin rights everything works. Firewall is disabled.
Do not open outgoing connections? Or only for incoming ports in a specific software (written in .net/wcf, for example)?
If the second — then you need to add Namespace Reservations, like this: msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms733768.aspx

Windows does not distinguish between ports above and below if I'm not mistaken.
Software written in C with wsock2 on the line.
The problem was that the software was on a network drive. From local drives to run ports are open! And with the admin rights — open everywhere.
Here is such an absurdity.
