Well I don't think you can do without those ports. Windows has to be activated to continue use after so many days. It won't just say.. "hey we can't connect you should get on the internet". IT DOES say, you are out of luck, this hasn't been activated and we are shutting off access to the OS.

I have a pass experience that if you are using Windows Server 2003.
And that software haven't activated yet. You can still login to the system with
safe mode and try do the activation again.

But that should not be appied to Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008.
I do not have enough resource to try out these OS.
So, I need to wait until ....

I'am not aware that the authentication processing just use HTTP(S) to do the trick.
Where you obtained this information.
Can you share it here ?

Those are the only two ports that you can take for granted on most computers that have "internet access".
It should be obvious, really.

Those are the same ports used for general web browsing. They aren't really ever blocked on networks, so I'm not sure why it's really much of a thing to need to know that Windows uses those for activation.
Usually topics have some sort of discussion-starter in them, or at least a fact that has interesting or unexpected effects to discuss Razz

I'll give you something to discuss... seems we're in need of a Windows OS installation ... that doesn't need to be activated? Smirk.

nope! If you are installing inside a company you need a licensing server ****** gives you for "free" (incredible!). It a database with SQL and a Windows 2008 Server. With this server you are outgoing the Windows MS Licensing Server at MS itself, so the server is doing the licensing job for MS.

--> you can install it also in a virtual machine... i guess you know what i mean
