    Hi folks,

    We are evaluating what we can do to address this feedback and would very much appreciate your continued votes and suggestions on it.

    One alternative to mounting the share on-premises over port 445 is Azure File Sync, which enables you to create a cache of an Azure file share on an on-premises Windows Server. Azure File Sync only sends data over the Azure Files HTTPS (using the File REST APIs). You can learn more about Azure File Sync here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/files/storage-sync-files-planning

    Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any additional questions!

    Thanks,

    Will Gries
    Program Manager, Azure Files

    with ISP blocking these ports this would be wonderful to have a workaround without the need for azure file sync
