AOL through a Firewall

By mogilner ·
I work for an online catalog company. Because 50% to 60% of the customer base comes through AOL we need to be able to test our site through AOL during the pre-production stage. Our preproduction server lies within the firewall.

We have some extremely strict security policies because of our parent company and some of the other businesses we are in.

Is there a secure way to allow an AOL within the firewall without compromising security.

AOL through a Firewall

by Michael A. Vance, CISSP In reply to AOL through a Firewall

If all you need to do is make sure that the site behaves with the integrated AOL browser, then it's no different than any other browser. You only have to allow ports 80 (http) and/or 443 (https) to the server.

If you're asking how to be able to log in and connect to AOL from the office LAN behind a firewall, then TCP ports 5190-5193 must be opened from your internal network to the Internet.
