Does WHS11 Need both Ports 443 and 80 for Remote Access? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to keep my security exposure to a minimum. I think it needs both ports but have heard it only needs 443? I have a NETGEAR WNDR3700 router that allows Port Forwarding, so have set these up manually and TCP to the server address:, also fixed manually. I tried uPnP also and it set up and opened these ports. Thanks... trying to keep the bad guys out.


    PS Is there a write up on security gotchas on WHS11 anywhere?  


    [edit]  I have a copy of WHS Unleashed v3 and it says you need TCP on 443 (SSL) and 4125 (RDP).
