    Sharepoint firewall Ports


    This question was mainly for Birmingham Schools but I suppose anyone would be able to help as most local authroties would probably have the same type of setup for firewalls and router connections.

    I want to make our sharepoint server available externally so our staff and students can use it from home and create,modify content etc. I will need to let them know to make my server ip forward facing but I also need to let them know which ports as well.

    Can anyone confirm if it's just ports 80 and 443, Is there any other ports that I haven't considered for sharepoint to work externally? We use Office sharepoint 2007.

    I would say it depends what ports you've told Sharepoint to use really, so check them in the config tools to check what your using and installed them to.

    If you are running http just ask them for port 80 - if your running https ask for 443. Your right with what your saying!

    The only other site that would be on a different port is your central admin and I would not recommend making this available externally.

    You should not receive any problem with either port 80 or 443

    I'm at a Birmingham school as well so feel free to get in contact at anytime
