CRM 4.0 Required TCP Ports

I was trying to install CRM on a Server 2003 connecting to SQL 2008 and ran into this error:

The warning message:
|Warning| Check SqlServerAgentValidator : Warning: Setup was unable to verify that SQL Server Agent (SqlAgent$crm) was running.

The error message:
|  Error| Check CrmSqlDomainValidator : Failure: The SQL Server ‘{0}’ is unavailable.

Windows Server 2003 requires TCP/UDP port 445 to be open between CRM and the Database.  Once the firewall was opened, the installation went off without a hitch.  In my experience with Server 2008, this port was not required.  Microsoft has a comprehensive port list, but my list is below:


Ports I request for CRM on Server 2008 installs:

TCP 1433

TCP 135


Ports I request [now] for CRM on Server 2003 installs:

TCP 1433

TCP 135
