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

Ports 4369, 25672, and 5672 are opened by default. These ports can be blocked by the firewall.

  • 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 VNQM

The default port for CDR/CMR downloads through SFTP and CLI operations through SSH.

23 TCP VNQM

The default port for CLI operations using telnet.

25

TCP

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

NTA

The TCP and UDP port used for DNS queries.

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.

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.

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.

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

5671

TCP

All

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

17777

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
