Hi jonnydollar,

Which ports you need to use depends on exactly what you want to achieve.  The page http://www.chebucto.ns.ca/~rakerman/port-table.html contains some very useful information on which ports are used for what.
Can you explain a little more about your setup and what you're trying to do?

Thanks

Take a look at table C.3 of  http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/2000/server/reskit/en-us/tcpip/part4/tcpappc.mspx
You'll need ports 135-139, 53,67 and 80.

You may need others if you wish to do more - such as printing or email access.

you can also open the following file (assuming you have XP) with notepad

c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\services

or... if you have unix/linux

/etc/services

This has a list of the most common ports for networking.

These ones are quite handy, because they are always "there" no need to go and lookup on the internet every time.
Hope this helps

It depends on how the printer is attached to the network.
If it's connected to a workgroup PC, then the NetBIOS range (135-139) will do.
Otherwise you may need 515, 631 or 9100

Take a look at http://www.chebucto.ns.ca/~rakerman/port-table.html#printing and http://members.cruzio.com/~jeffl/sco/lp/printservers.htm for more info.
