Re: BES on exchange need to know outbound ports!
I sniffed the wan port and got a few more, I surfed the internet and got a few more. I put them all in as allowed outbound and BES started working again. Sent a bunch of test msgs, meeting appointments and file attachments and all were received on the outlook client and BB.
I'll post them tomorrow for discussion, tonight I'm beat and as soon as the files are on my thumb drive I'm going home. Well, my temporary home, my real home is in darkness for night 3.
I also deleted from both ends just to make sure updates were going through.
I must say, I'm pretty proud of myself. I spent more time trying to get around floods to purchase the 4G card than I spent restoring the services. Let's hope the power co and verizon get things patched up quickly. At least I'm ready for when this happens again.
No power, no FIOS, and if you were sitting in my office you'd never know it. A whole house generator and this stupid little 4g card plugged into a mac mini running win7 and it's like nothing ever happened. Of course the dreaded fax machine is dead, but I'm a tech not a miracle worker. Tomorrow I get back to my day job (building houses).
