Windows Azure Pack Firewall Port Requirements

The Windows Azure Pack is a set of Azure technologies that installs locally, to enable communication between your local datacenter and Microsoft's Cloud. It works with Windows Server 2012 R2 and System Center 2012 R2 to provide a gateway to enable a true Hybrid Cloud environment. But, like anything that involves communication flow, it also requires specific network ports to be open at the firewall.
