We're setting up about a dozen mac mini's across the city that need to be managed from a central lion-server.
Our IT department is willing to open up some ports and forward them to our lion server but they are not willing to give us VPN access.
What ports do I need to forward to the mini server in order to manage the devices?
- I'm thinking mostly of when I update a profile and need it to be pushed out to the other devices.
- I also need each device to be able to authenticate via Open Directory when the machine is remote. Of course I'll setup "mobility" but I still need the machines to sync changes like new passwords when they "can" connect.
- Lastly, I'd like to be able to connect FROM the server TO each Mac mini via Apple remote-desktop. (The machines will not have static IP addresses on their side.)
