Required ports for HIve Active Heating from British Gas

Just a short post for anyone having the Hive Active Heating system installed in their home with a hardened router. The engineer had no idea what ports it required. So during the installation I reviewed the router logs and identified the ports needed.
The following ports need forwarding  to ensure the device can "phone home".
  • 123
  • 4123
  • 5671
The device will not work without it.
