Am I missing something or do you really need to create a separate policy for every port you want to allow?  For example, if I want to allow ports 80, 443, 1207, 8080 and 15000 to specific internal server, do I really need to create 5 policies?  This would get messy really quick for a large number of servers/policies.

If its allowing ports to specific internal server such as

Policy name: xxz
Action: Allow
Protocol: http,https, user-defined (1207,8080,15000)
Source:Internal/?
Destination:ComputerName or internal server
Users:All-users /your users

Then it should be ok. No need to create 5 rules. However, if you are publishing web server then use web publishing rule for each of them. It would not be messy just select all similar rules>right click>group them. you will be organised.

Then I must be missing something.  I don't see any way to select more than a single protocol/port per policy or create a custom protocol object that includes more than 1 port?   Is it "secondary connections" maybe?

No actually you are not missing anything when you are publishing a server you can only specify one protocol/port

in your case you will need 5 rules

@araberuni the OP is obviously talking about server publishing rules and he is right he will need to create 5 rules as I said earlier
