For a long time now I've been trying to get a handle on what is really required for MS hosts to talk to to other MS hosts but googled doco is scant.
The MS site does not seem to acknowledge the existence of UDP or TCP (surprised: Not me!)
Also in the predefined services of the ASA there is nothing for 135 (both tcp and UDP i believe) ... this is pretty weird as it is the MS end point mapper and therefore very common.
Any info or links to definitive stuff would be useful.
BTW: I am, of course not letting this MS chatter move over OUTSIDE interfaces .. we have many internal FW's and pvt links into customers where some of this dodgy MS stuff is required in order to support the customers.
Thanks in advance,
Yup we used this document to make security policies for our customers.
Don't focus too much on the pre-defined ports of the ASA/PIX, it seems this is an issue they don't focus much on.
Please rate helpful posts. Regards
