Webdispatcher opening firewall ports

Hello All ,

We are facing a situation that our PI / SAP webservices are not reachable because of our systems being in MZ zones behind our corporate firewall.

I have looked for different options to make them accesable without compromising on security . The best solution i found until now is to use SAP webdispathcer.

But i am not clear on how it works. I get it that it must be installed in DMZ and it is the entry point for all Http communication , I am not sure how it talks to SAP servers in MZ .

Which protocol does it use ?

Are ny port need to be opened in the corporate firewall ( between webdispathcer & SAP servers )

If so which ones?

If the ports are opened , what big value is webdispathcer serving ?

Are there any other solutions for my problem ? (I already know about the AEX option ) .

Would be interested to know about your current topology and its advantages/disadvantages.
