How do I open ports 443 and 80 running Novell Data Synchronizer

I have set up Novell data Synchronizer on a Linux Server running SUSE. The problem I have is when I try to synchronize with remote devices i.e. iPads. I find ports 443 and 80 are not open and listening for traffic. My synchronization therefore fails. Can anyone tell me how to open ports 443 and 80? I have read the default listening ports for Apache is 443 and 80. Should I be running Apache on the server?

Port numbers (& default usage) are shown in /etc/services, but the usage of each one is by convention, not enforced.

Conventionally std web server ie http unencrypted eg Apache listens on 80, SSL on 443.

Control of opening/closing ports is down to iptables eg Sections 42.8, 42.9 of

You definitely should not install Apache as Data Synchronizer has its own web server. Also, it only listens on one port, so you don't need to open both 80 AND 443. Just go into the properties of the Mobility Connector to see which port it's currently listening on and whether or not you are using SSL.

With that being said, by default SLES 11 has the SLES firewall enabled so you can either disable the firewall (probably the easiest option if the server itself sits behind some sort of firewall) or you can configure an exception for the port that the Mobility Connector is listening on.

For help with configuring SLES, such as managing the SLES firewall, try the SLES networking forum.

For help with configuring Data Synchronizer, try the Data Synchronizer forum.
