Today I’m going to do a little advertising for 2 super interesting posts for SharePoint administrators. Namely, what ports to open during the installation of a SharePoint 2013 farm!
SharePoint 2013 Ports, Proxies and Protocols – An Overview of Farm Communications : http://blogs.msdn.com/b/uksharepoint/archive/2013/01/21/sharepoint-2013-ports-proxies-and-protocols-an-overview-of-farm-communications.aspx

A big thank you to the authors of these articles! And a big thank you to my colleague Philippe Nonorgues for pointing out those.
Hope this helps!
