Connection failed when uploading database to FileMaker Server

Your post

When attempting to upload a database to FileMaker Server for WebDirect (Using these instructions), I receive a "Connection failed" error. I've tried using both the hostname and the IP address. Below is my current configuration

FileMaker Server 12 Advanced running on Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise running on the same network and domain as FileMaker Pro 13 client.

Web Server:

I'm looking over the port list and i'm a little confused on which ports need to be open on the server and on the client machines.

Which ports need to be opened in order to upload a database to the server?
