I'm attempting to setup log shipping between two differnet domains. When I attempt to connect to the secondary server instance the primary server fails to connect. If I turn off the windows firewall on the secondary server then I'm able to connect.

I have opened up the following tcp ports on the secondary server windows firewall 1433, 1434, 137, 139, 445

I have opened up the following udp ports on the secondary server windows firewall 137, 138

Are there any other ports or firewall settings that I've missed?

I was trying to connect to a secondary instance on the server. If I use the primary instance this appears to work. Is there a way to use the secondary instance? I have the secondary instance port open but it is not of course using 1433.

The server needed to be added to the LMHosts file so that SQL Server could resolve the path to the directory that the Transaction logs were being saved to.
