SQL Server 2014 ports

Last Modified: 2015-03-16

I'm installing SQL Server 2014 on Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise.

When at the "Install Rules" part of Setup, it warns on Windows Firewall. (see attachment)

Which ports do I open? I don't see a straight forward answer to this anywhere, only pages of "what if" and different scripts.

I've tried opening 1433 & 1434, but the warning remains.

Many thanks.
