Ports being utilized by VMM 2008


Before our official documentation for VMM 2008 comes out, I wanted to outline for everyone all the ports that VMM 2008 RTM will use (almost all of these are the same for beta). Some of these ports are configurable during VMM setup – for those ports, I listed the default option.
