    Just got HAP up and running but have a few security questions.

    Hi, After a few attempts I have HAP V8 installed on a member server, YAY.

    I followed a post to create a self signed cert How to Set Up SSL on IIS 7 : The Official Microsoft IIS Site, then followed the HAP video.

    Now that I have HAP up and running I need to make it externally available for 2 or 3 teachers (small primary).

    Q1. I assume port 443 needs to be forwarded. Is that correct?
    Q2. Do any other ports need to be forwarded?
    Q3. Am I ok to use the self cert for external connections?
    Q4. Any lock down or security settings I need to be aware of from a 2008r2 IIS perspective?

    Thanks

    1. Yes, it uses https, not http, so port 443
    2. No
    3. Yes but it's best to use a proper certificate. You can get a free one from StartSSL
    4. Not really but you can run the windows analysis tools to be sure
