MS Dynamics GP 2013 ports

I recently installed a Dell SonicWall at my CFO's home.  He can access everything on our network which also uses a Dell SonicWall via a VPN connection.  However he cannot access MS Dynamics GP 2013.  He gets a server not found error.  Are there additional ports or services that I need to enable to allow this connection?

You might need to open up port 1434 if it's blocked.

Are you saying you have the Dynamics GP application installed locally on the CFO's laptop and they are trying to use it at home by connecting to the SQL server on your network in the office through the Dell SonicWall VPN?

If so, that's a really bad idea for many reasons, not the least of which is that this is not supported for Dynamics GP. Here is a blog post taking about this in more detail: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/developingfordynamicsgp/2010/07/27/why-cant-i-run-microsoft-dynamics-gp-via-odbc-over-a-wan/. It was written a number of years ago, but the concepts are all still valid.

The recommended way of giving users remote access to Dynamics GP is to connect to a computer in the office that has the Dynamics GP application installed using RDP. This can either be a desktop, which will only allow one person at a time to connect to it remotely or a server running remote desktop services to allow multiple users access at the same time.
