What is the SecNap device (model number) and what port is it wanting to open?
Usually the port is opened on the device and forwarded to the server.  Exchange should already have the ports required open and won't need additional tweaks to make it work.

I will look but I believe it is 473, but then I try it it fails, cannot open port or find exchange server
Model # SME-150

It may be talking about the standard windows firewall found in control panel??

TCP/IP Port 473 is Hybrid-POP - what the heck does it want with that port?
