Shortcuts in Microsoft SharePoint

Over the last couple of years, I have reviewed many Microsoft SharePoint Farms. Very few have been great, some have been good, most have left little to be desired. Microsoft SharePoint is fairly easy to install but it does take some dedication to the product in order to install it correctly. Most organizations either take shortcuts out of the lack of experience or because they don’t believe their environment or network is in harms way. No matter the reason, the content in this blog is dedicated to providing quick lessons on what should be done and also showing why. Hopefully, it will help those interested in building solutions that are as secure as the technology allows them to be.

SharePoint 2013 Ports, Proxies and Protocols Diagram

Lesson: You should know which ports, proxies, and protocols are needed for your particular scenario. Include them in your documentation!

Marek Samaj created a diagram of the Microsoft SharePoint 2013 ports, proxies, and protocols and did a fantastic job. I am posting the diagram here so that I have it with other information that I use on often.
