What ports do I need to open in my firewall for Director?
If I use Port Address Translation (PAT), what ports do I need to forward for Director?



With SGME 5.4.2 and later, the Director appliance uses the following ports:

  • 8082 for accessing the Director Management Console and to enable Director to start the ProxySG Management Console
  • 8085 for registering devices and for downloading the Java Network Launching Protocol (JNLP) application used to start the Management Console
  • 8086 for registering devices
  • 22 for Secure Shell (SSH) access
  • 23 for Telnet if Telnet is enabled (Telnet is disabled by default)
  • 873 (UDP) for standby

The ports are used as follows:

  • Director Management Console to Web browser on 8085 (download the JNLP application)
  • Director Management Console to Director on 22 (for general communication)
  • Director Management Console to ProxySG on 8082 (for statistics only)
  • Director Management Console to Director on 8082 (for Java WebStart launch)
  • Director appliance to ProxySG on 8082 (getting updated Java Archive (.jar) files after a ProxySG upgrade)
  • Director appliance to ProxySG on 22
  • Director appliance to Director appliance on 873 (UDP) for standby
  • Registration, ProxySG to Director appliance on 8085 and 8086
