windows 2008 migration

Hi All,
im migrating a sever from 2003 -> 2008.
I have a sonicwall tz170 firewall.
However there is a note on document about opening udnp port?
Also,
i get a warning when running setup about:
"windows small business server cannot open ports 25,80.443,987 on the sevrer in order to................."
Does this matter or is it just warning,? as i have tz170 port opened (tcp though).
Thanks
stepehen

As it states, these ports are needed in order to receive e-mail and other information over the internet.

Port 25 - So your server can accept mail
Port 80 - So your server can accept web traffic, eg Outlook Web Access, should only need 443 for this though
Port 443 - So your server can accept secure web traffic, for Outlook Web Access, Remote Web Workplace etc..
Port 987 - External secure Companyweb access

Do you intenet to run any of the above services?  If so, you will need to forward the ports, if not, no need to forward the ports.

Not sure what this means:

'as i have tz170 port opened (tcp though'

Are you saying you have already forwarded the ports but still getting that error message?

It's normal to see this error, unless your router supports uPNP (whilst many do they all seem to be different) then the wizard will not be able to open these ports for you.
The error is purely saying it cannot make the change for you.

You just need to do it manually.
