    You need to open the ports that this program will use. The question is where the firewall is located and where iperf is located? Are they on the same machine or 2 different machines?

    OK, is your firewall setup to allow all outbound connections? If not the you are going to have to setup the firewall to allow the ports needed to leave the box. Is your inbound rules setup to allow ESTABLISHED,RELATED connections back in? If not again you are going to have to allow this also.

    Sorry, I do not use either one of those. I use CLI (Command Line Interface) for the firewall.
