Firewall issue - Connecting BO XI 3.1 from .Net app - opendocument URL



Good day. We have a .Net application which connects to BO XI 3.1 to view the business objects reports. It is working perfectly when in my local machine and development & test environments. When it is being deployed in stage environment it throws the following error " System.ArgumentException: Sorry - you could not be logged on. CMS host 'servername' cannot be found on the network. Please verify the name and that network name resolution is working properly.".

We noticed that the stage web server is firewall restricted. Actually from stage web server we are trying to connect BO dev server which is not firewall protected. Though we have supplied respective ports for establishing a connection and viewing the report, it did not turn up positively.

Port # used for authentication purpose: 6400

Port # used for viewing the report using opendocument.jsp: 8080

I am in touch with network team to resolve the firewall restriction issue and I am curious to know what protocols (TCP / UDP / ICMP....) are being used for an authentication and viewing purpose. If I would get this information it will be much helpful for me to resolve the issue in a right direction.

Looking forward to hear about how to find which protocols are being used. Thanks in advance.
