Visual Studio 2012 Updates Port/Address


I have Visual Studio 2012 Pro installed on my workstation in my office.

If I were to go to "Extensions and Updates" from the "Tools" menu of VS and then go to Updates, I'm getting an error saying "The Remote Server returned an error (403) Forbidden."

I know that my companies Network Administrators did do some changes the other day, as I was able to get updates before they made the changes. So i am sure that my Network Administrator blocked something.

Does anyone know what port/address VS uses to call home for these updates, so that I can pass this information on to my network administrators to unblock?
