Which ports and servers need to be open for YOU?

Hi everyone!

My SLES/OES Servers are - of course - behind a firewall.
As I don't want to open the whole www for these servers I need to know which ports and servers need to be open in the firewall for NCC and YOU to work properly.

Oddly enough Google and Novell knowledgebase didn't help me with that. So thanks in advance!

nu.novell.com port 80 and 443

But note that nu.novell.com resolves to one of the huge internet load
balancers, as such if you really have a plain firewall that works
soleley on IP addresses, you'll end up openeing the whole world either way.

May I suggest a SMT server?

Thank you both for your answers!
It works with nu.novell.com (the firewall supports rules based on dns)
