Ports required for SBS 2003
Posted on 2006-04-21
I recently upgraded from Exchange 2000 to SBS 2003 Std.
We had our firewall set up in a way that even from home, I could connect to the Exchange server and slowly download my email to the laptop. Reason being, I fly a lot and can do a lot of work on the plane where I cannot get OWA. I usually would just turn my laptop on for about an hour before I leave and let the email sync.
Now with SBS 2003 it's not working. The new server has the same IP as the old one and the firewall config has not changed. I am thinking that SBS 2003 need some other ports open or somethng tweaked to let me connect remotely.
I checked the firewall log and it looks like my laptop is trying to make connections over TCP ports 1096 and 1160 to the server. I have never needed those ports open before under Exchange 2000. I tried looking them and they are coming up blank. Are these required? I do not want to open them before I know what they are.
Also, is there a guide or a checklist of things needed to be done in order to have remote access between Outlook on my laptop at home and the Exchange server at work?
