Date Fri, 22 Jan 2016 18:30:39 GMT


Mariia Mykhailova updated REEF-347:
    Summary: Configure .NET tests to only listen on  (was: Configure tests to only
listen on

> Configure .NET tests to only listen on
> ------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: REEF-347
>                 URL:
>             Project: REEF
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: REEF.NET Evaluator
>            Reporter: Markus Weimer
>            Priority: Minor
> When running the REEF.NET tests, the Windows firewall kicks in several times asking for
{{Evaluator.exe}} to have permission to open a port. These popups are part of the *application*
firewall of Windows: Whenever an unknown app wants to open a port, Windows asks for the users
> We don't see these for the JVM tests, as we probably all have given the {{java.exe}}
that permission a long time ago, opening a gaping whole in our safety net from java-based
malware :-)
> We can't do the same for the {{Evaluator.exe}}, as we create a new one on every build,
and the Windows firewall is to distinguish them as new.
> According to [this thread on stackoverflow|],
we can however get a much cleaner solution: As long as we configure all our processes to listen
on {{}} only, the firewall won't be active. 
> The recent addition of the {{PortProvider}} and {{LocalAddressProvider}} classes should
make that feasible.
