Microsoft online services: FQDN firewall openings

article #947, updated 157 days ago

Some firewalls have FQDN capability (e.g., Watchguards), which makes careful rule creation practical for a behemoth like Microsoft Office 365 and all of its related services. The info below is condensed and sorted from here. I have omitted a very few items (e.g., ports 25, 143, 465, and 993, and *.msn.com), for reasons which I hope are reasonably obvious.

Create one rule with these ports:

80, TCP
443, TCP
587, TCP
3478-81, UDP
5223, TCP
50000-59999, TCP and UDP

to the following list of locations, and it is done.
