Re: Required ports

Thanks for your good advice.

Could you please suggest any simple way to put the guest to a separate
network segment. In addition, they also need to access our vpn and network
printers so I am unsure how to separate them from our network.

about it.

Reading the documentation of the program used to establish that
connection (and probably contacting the vendor) would usually be the
first step. If that doesn't help, you could use a protocol analyzer like
Ethereal [1] to sniff the network traffic generated during the
connection attempts. Also read your firewall logs.

However, you're most likely creating a big hole in your firewall by
allowing a guest to estalish connections between your network and the
network of his company. I strongly advise against it. Or at least put
him into a separate network segment without access to your internal
