Exchange Online and Office 365 firewall settings for internal and external access.

I am preparing for Exchange Online to migrate all of our mailboxes to the cloud using a hybrid solution offered by microsoft. In that solution, they have stated a requirement to have an ADFS server and an DirSync server.

Now when I build our servers, all the ports are locked down by default by our hosting company. I am trying to keep this as secure as possible. I am assuming that ADFS needs to be externally facing. What ports will I need to open for the external connectivity.

Also what ports will i require for the internal connectivity between our internal servers.

Lastly, does the DirSync tool need external access and if so what ports are required internally and externally or does the DirSync just need to connect to the ADFS server from the Domain Controller?

 Please help! Newbie with Office 365.

You can review all the URLs/IPs and Ports needed here:

Depending on which services you are going to use, you might not need some of those. Dirsync needs external access, on 443 (and 80). Use AD FS proxies for external access, the port is again 443.

For AD FS you need 443, dirsync uses LDAP ones.
