      My question is:  is this still a bug?  Or has it been fixed?

      In short: we are trying to install a 2-machine version of CWP, across a DMZ/firewall. 

      One machine (the "master") is in a .16 subnet,  the other (web server) is in a .18 subnet ("DMZ") (the "worker").    I install FMS on both machines, worker first.  When I come to deploying the MASTER machine, it simply doesn't see the WORKER, and therefore cannot connect.

      I am double-checking with our firewall people that the following ports are open going both directions:
      5003, 16000, 16001, 16016, 16018, 16020, 16021   (Does IIS need to be installed on the MASTER machine, even though it won't be used as a web server?)

      If there is still a  bug with this configuration, please let me know, as I am obviously wasting my time.  Otherwise, I will continue to iron out whatever issue(s) there are with my deployment.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      I think the description of the problem covers it.

      Expected result

      Connection, successful deployment.

      Actual result

      MASTER does not see WORKER for deployment.

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      No error messages, it simply does not see the WORKER, as if I had never installed it on any other machine(s).
