is there a way to confirm this in the software since I allways thought it was srp.na.blackberry.net?

Run BBSRPTest.exe.  It should be located under C:\Program Files\Research in Motion\BlackBerry Enterpriese Server\Utility\ folder.  Yours might be different because its Professional Software, I'm not sure.  But it will list what srp address your SRP ID is going through and what port it uses.  The SRP is tied to the contry it first hits unless you contact RIM and have them change it.  I think you also have to turn off you BES while they repoint you.

It depends where you live. If you are based in the US, it is srp.us.blackberry.net

srp.na.blackberry.net is the old address, they are moving away from that.

The result I receive back is srp.us.blackberry.net (206.51.26.33) on port 3101.  This is all I need to open then?  Is the port need to be open outgoing and incoming?  And is it a TCP or UPD port?

Outgoing.  Your BES creates a connection out to the SRP and and then keeps it open so no port has to be open incoming.  I am not sure if it is TCP or UDP.
