    Can't connect from work - which ports do I need?

    Hello,

    I have FolderShare installed at work and I can't establish an outbound
    connection. I can't even log in to FolderShare - it times out on the initial
    login.

    My question is - what ports does FolderShare use, and what IPs does it
    connect to? I assume it only needs port 80 outbound, which I know we have
    open. Unless my company is blocking the FolderShare address space, I can't
    imagine why else it couldn't connect. Are any other outbound ports needed?
    Are any inbound ports needed? (I'm sure we have no inbound connections
    allowed).

    Thanks.....

    Nobody knows which inbound/outbound ports are used by FolderShare? I checked
    any available documentation and couldn't find this either. Seems like it
    would be a fairly common question. I'd also be surprised if you needed more
    than common outbound ports to connect - otherwise, most users on a corporate
    network would be out of luck.
