hi there,

I have a remote sql box that i'm trying to replicate with over a vpn and through a firewall.

I can get to it with pings and enterprise manager, but when i try to create a pull subscription I can't see the package that I've created in the wizard - even though I can see it in enterprise manager....

I'm wondering if there more ports that need to be opened for this to work...

Any suggestions or other thoughts gratefully received...

By default, SQL Server uses port 1433 for most things on TCP/IP, if there's only one instance installed. You can set it to whatever you want to with the Network Utility, but both sides of the replication process need to match.
