Migrate SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2013 step by step - Part 3 Configure Firewall

This is ongoing Migration SharePoint series.

I will be breaking the blog posts into 6 pieces :

Most of the organizations have medium or high network infrastructure in terms of firewall setup with dedicated network devices irrespective of application such as SharePoint, CRM etc. Therefore, it’s important to have a basic knowledge of networks.  Clearly, you got the first roadblock is by not connect to SQL server. However, besides SQL server there are couple ports that we need ports between SharePoint application and web servers as well as:
a)      Search Server
b)      Distributed Cache
c)       Office Web Apps

You need to prepare a firewall rules for each SharePoint port as described above.
Well known ports for SharePoint as are follows: 

TCP Ports for SharePoint 

I have uploaded a sample Firewall rules than can be used for your reference here. For References Purpose SharePoint Server Ports

For purpose of demo purposes, we can add firewall rules be between SharePoint servers and SQL server but it’s not an advisable approach.

3.1 You need to configure firewall at SQL Server 2012 server so that SharePoint can communicate with SQL Server. Switch to SQL Server 2012 and navigate to Windows Firewall.

3.2 Select “Inbound Rules” and click on “New Rule…” as shown:

3.3 In the “New Incoming Rule Wizard”, select “Port” and click on “Next” button

3.4 Select TCP and specific local ports 1433-1434

Give a name for this Firewall Rule and click on “Finish
3.6 A new Firewall rule is now displayed at SQL Server 2012.
