Default BES Ports

Please Login to Remove!

I recall reading one of BB's PDF that you need to open port 3101 TCP on your firewall so BES can work. However looking at this original firewall were I am I see the also have opened ports 8100 and 8300 TCP to BES. What are these ports used for and are they needed?

8100 - Push Server Connection Listen Port
8300 - Web Server Listen Port

These shouldn't need to be specified on the firewall. MDS still operates within the SRP halo, so 3101 should open up everything.
In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and is widely regarded as a bad move.

if i am in the BES where do i look to see how my MDS ports are currently configured?

I have an application that is to be pushed to handhelds OTA asking for a "Push Port". The only ports I find under MDS are the Web Server and Secure Webserver Listening port. What I cannot find is the "Push Server Connection Listen Port" the jibi references. Thanks.

alright well in case anyone else was unaware of this it is the Web Server Listening Port. It can be found under the General tab of MDS Properties windows (r-click BES and Select Mobile Data Service Properties). As an added bonus you can view the BES MDS stats by typing the IP address followed by designated listening port. ie - Hope this helps someone someday.
