The following table lists the port requirements for Network Automation Manager.

  • Used for Microsoft-DS SMB file sharing. This port must be open on the client computer (inbound) for remote deployment.

Port

Type

Product/
Feature

Description

11 ICMP NPM Used by the NetPath probe to discover network paths.
21 TCP VNQM Used for CDR/CMR downloads through FTP.
22 TCP NCM, VNQM

The default port to transfer configs using SSH/SCP. It is also used for CDR/CMR downloads through SFTP and CLI operations through SSH.

23 TCP NCM, VNQM

The default port to transfer configs using telnet and CLI operations.

25

TCP

NCM, NPM

The SMTP port used for non-encrypted messages.

43 TCP NPM Used by NetPath to query IP ownership and other information about the discovered IP addresses.
53 TCP/
UDP

IPAM, NTA

The TCP and UDP port used for DNS queries.
69 TFTP NCM The port the TFTP server listens on.

80

TCP

All

The default additional web server port. If you specify any port other than 80, you must include that port in the URL used to access the web console.

For example, if you specify an IP address of 192.168.0.3 and port 8080, the URL used to access the web console is http://192.168.0.3:8080. Open the port to enable communication from your computers to the Orion Web Console.

The port is also used for Cisco UCS monitoring.

135 TCP Agents Open on the remote computer (inbound) to deploy the agent from the SolarWinds server.
137 UDP NTA

The port used for outbound traffic if NetBIOS name resolution is turned on.

When NTA is trying to resolve the NetBIOS names of servers in their conversations, you may find a large amount of outbound UDP 137 traffic from the NTA Collector to a number of external addresses. You can confirm the traffic by using the Flow Navigator to match the outbound connections to existing conversations.

This is normal behavior when NetBIOS is enabled. An easy way to demonstrate the behavior is to disable NetBIOS in NTA and watch all outbound connections terminate.

161

UDP

TCP

All

The default port for Polling Devices and Statistics Collection using SNMP.

The NTA collector uses this port for polling CBQoS-enabled devices for traffic-shaping policies and results using SNMP.

162

UDP

NCM

The Trap Server uses this port to listen and receive incoming messages.

443

TCP

All

The default port for https binding.

It is also used for bi-directional ESX/ESXi server polling or Cisco UCS monitoring.

445

TCP

Agents  

465

TCP

All

The port used for SSL-enabled email alert actions.

514

UDP

NPM

The Syslog Service uses this port to listen for incoming messages.

587

TCP

All

The port used for TLS-enabled email alert actions.

1024+ RPC IPAM Any RPC ports dynamically assigned above 1024. To configure RPC dynamic port allocations see: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/154596

1433

TCP

All

The port used for communication between the SolarWinds server and the SQL Server. Open the port from your Orion Web Console to the SQL Server.

The port used for communication between the NTA Flow Storage and the NPM SQL server.

1434

UDP

All

The port used for communication with the SQL Server Browser Service to determine how to communicate with certain, non-standard SQL Server installations. For more information, see this Microsoft Technet article.

1801

TCP

All

Used with MSMQ WCF binding (for more information see this KB: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/183293).

2055

UDP

NTA

The default port for receiving flows on any NTA collector. It must be open for receiving flows on additional polling engines.

4369

TCP

High
Availability

Open on the main Orion server and its standby server. This port is not required when protecting additional polling engines.

5671

TCP

All

The port used for SSL encrypted RabbitMQ messaging from the additional polling engines to the main polling engine.

5672

TCP

High Availability

Open on the primary (incoming) and standby (outgoing) servers. This port is used for communication between HA pool members.

8888 TCP NCM The default web server port for NCM.

17777

TCP

All

Used for Orion module traffic. Open the port to enable communication from your poller to the Orion Web Console and from the Orion Web Console to your poller.

17778

HTTPS

TCP

All

The port is required for access to the SWIS API and agent communication. It is also used by the NetPath probe.

17779

HTTP

All

Used for SolarWinds Toolset Integration over HTTP.
