I am trtying to install the monitor over firewall, for performance center 11. I am trying to verify the connectivity between the MI Listener Machine and the MOFW machine and the traffic light is always in red status, meaning there is no connectivity between the two machines. I followed every step in the manual and checked every possible way that is mentioned in the manual.
This is just a POC and does not include any firewalls in between. I wanted to see if the two machines would be able to communicate with each other.
Is there anyone out there, with some previous experience of setting up monitor over firewall or running vusers over a firewall?
From what I can see, the Load runner agent service log says:
"21/07/2011 16:20:51 Agent over Firewall from host: al_xx.x.xxx.xx_ofw is trying to connect.[MsgId: MERR-29528]"
But it never says if the connection is established or not.
The performance agent log on the MOFW machine does not have any entries in it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have setup running vusers over a firewall before and works perfectly. Here are the configuration settings I used.
Run agent as process.
on MI listener
Check Client Certificates = False
Private Key Password = yourpassword
on load generator > Agent configuration
Enable Firewall Agent and then clicke on Settings
MI listener name = ip address of the MI listener
Local machine key = unique identifier
MI Listener User Name = MI listener localuser account
MI Listener Password = MI listener localuser password
Connection type = TCP
Enable Use Secure Connection (SSL)
Check Server Certificates = Medium
Private key password = yourpassword
Hope it helps

Sorry misread your post.
the message you received is normal. MOFW or LG machine has successfully established communication with the MI Listener.
You need to add the LG on the controller to establish the connection. Once you're done and connected to the LG, you will see the below messages in the agent service log. You will also see the LG traffic light turn to green.
28/07/2011 11:47:35 Agent over Firewall from host: <load generator hostname> is trying to connect. [MsgId: MERR-29528]
28/07/2011 11:47:43 Connection from controller host: <controller hostname> is established. [MsgId: MERR-29528]
Hope this helps

I had the same problem. It's ok now.
Be careful about the MiListener's IIS. the three service of it must be closed. Especially the WorldWide publication service (something like that), because this service take the port 443 and prevent an another machine to take it.
