Hi,

I need to know what ports to open up on the firewall to allow access to the following:

1. Active Directory for our FTP Server sitting in the DMZ to communicate with the domain controller
2. Port to open for a windows xp plug in MMC for IIS6 to communicate to windows 2003 server sitting in the DMZ
3.  What MMC is required to be able to remotely restart services on a windows 2003 server, using a windows xp machine on another network. (what ports? same as the port in question 2?)

Thanks

Julia

53 (TCP, UDP) - Domain Name System (DNS).
88 (TCP, UDP) - Kerberos authentication.  
135 (TCP) - EndPointMapper.
389 (TCP, UDP) - Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP).
445 (TCP) - Server message block (SMB) for Netlogon, LDAP conversion, and Microsoft Distributed File System (DFS) discovery.
3268 (TCP) - LDAP to global catalog servers.


Microsoft management consoles use RPC to connect to and manage a machine. This requires port 139, which is basically NetBIOS over TCP/IP.

You would be better off using remote desktop to mess with services.

To connect to a remote PC, go to Start, Run, type MMC
Hit enter and go to File, Add Remove Snap-in, and add the Services snap-in
It will ask you if you want to run this console for the local machine or connect to a remote one, pick remote and follow the "instructions"

It could prove difficult to do if you are on a totally seperate network though, which is why I would use Remote Desktop:
On Server: right click My Computer, Properties, Remote Tab, check " Allow Users"
Add an account to allowed users
Forward port 3389 to the server, and set up a RDP connection on the XP workstation using the user accounts credentials that you allowed access for on the Server..
