Resolving Blocked Ports Through Windows Firewall-Week 40

You can find this week’s video here.

This week's video shows how to easily and quickly track down IPs and ports that need to be opened to allow legitimate traffic through the firewall.

Part of being a web server administrator is keeping your firewalls properly configured and troubleshooting to track down the necessary ports and IPs that have legitimate reasons to pass through your firewall. It’s not unusual to run into difficulty trying to find out which ports are required by a particular application. Sometimes you can determine which ports to allow by reading the specifications of the application. However, there are times when documentation is limited or you deal with a custom app.

This is now week 40 of a 52 week series for the web pro. You can view past and future weeks here: http://dotnetslackers.com/projects/LearnIIS7/
