Can anyone tell me how to determine which ports should be open between client and server when using a crystal reports viewer control?  The control is installed on a client, accessing a remote database.  Note: Crystal Reports V9.

Unless your web server is using SSL (you'll see https instead of http in the URL) in which case you'll also need the SSL port (443 by default) open.

By the way, port 80 should already be open.  If it isn't working then it probably is a different problem.
