Remote Assistance Firewall


Puppy Breath

Anyone happen to know what port(s) you'd need to open to use Remote
Assistance through a (non-Windows) firewall?

How about Remote Desktop?

Zack Whittaker

The ports should be the same. Can't you just add the Remote Desktop/Remote
Assistance applications to the firewall instead?

Yeah, in Windows Firewall you can to that. I'm just wondering if I had some
other firewall up, what ports would I need to open?

Jane Colman

Whichever 3rd party software firewall you used would automatically open the
correct ports once you have given the program that needs to connect
permission to do so in said firewall.

Do you have TS installed or something? I can't connect to/from my XP laptop.
I always get an error message about no Terminal Server. (Though this laptop
also have the PX Home Edition installed, which I'm sure doesn't help).
