I installed sysmantec endpoint protection this weekend and now users can't access ACT DB and it uses port 1205.
I have used the clean wipe utilitly on the server that is hosting the DB and on one WS and still can't access the DB.
I don't want to remove the protection manager untill I can restart the server.
Is there any way to find the port 1205 and allow it in SBS 2008 or Symantec?

What version of ACT!?
Are you trying to access a local database, network database or sync server?

The port you want to open is 1433. What made you think it's 1205?

While I can't help with SEP, this would give you the details for Windows firewall:

ACT support told me it was 1205. Shows what they know! LOL

Thanks for your input. I was able to get it working by disabling the firewall on the server using the registry edit and set it to 0 and restarted.

This will only be temporary untill I can get it all worked out.
