WPM port requirements

WPM port requirements

Review and open ports for WPM to support communication for the Orion server, the main polling engine, Additional Polling Engines (APEs), and Additional Web Servers (AWS). These ports include feature specific requirements including Orion agents and SolarWinds High Availability (HA).

  • Ports 4369, 25672, and 5672 are opened by default on the main server for RabbitMQ messaging. These ports can be blocked by the firewall. If using High Availability, make sure port 4369 is open.
  • The Job Engine v2 process uses RPC ports > 1024 (TCP, bidirectional) to communicate with network devices.
  • If your devices do not use the default syslog port to send messages, you must also modify the Orion server to listen to that port.

Server port requirements

  • Ports 4369, 25672, and 5672 are opened by default on the main server for RabbitMQ messaging. These ports can be blocked by the firewall. When running SolarWinds High Availability, ensure ports 4369 and 25672 are open.
  • RPC ports > 1024 (TCP, bidirectional) is used by the Job Engine v2 process to communicate with Windows nodes.

Default Additional Web Server (AWS) port. If you specify any port other than 80, you must include that port in the URL used to access the Orion Web Console. For example, if you specify 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 may also be used for Cisco UCS monitoring.

WPM Recorder port requirements

The WPM Recorder is a Windows application you can install on a computer to capture web browser steps as you perform them to simulate the typical steps taken by end users, including mouse clicks, text input, and file downloads.

In addition to WPM Recorder system requirements, note these TCP/IP port requirements:

  • 80, open for http traffic
  • 443, open for https traffic
  • 17777, open for SolarWinds traffic

WPM Player port requirements

The WPM Player is a Windows service you can install on remote computers to simulate end user experiences with web applications by playing back recorded transactions.

In addition to WPM Player system requirements, note these TCP/IP port requirements::

  • 80, open for http traffic
  • 443, open for https traffic
  • 17777, open for SolarWinds traffic
  • 17777, open for SolarWinds traffic
  • 17781, open for server-initiated (passive) communication mode
  • 17782, open for server-initiated (active) communication mode
  • 17783, open for WPM Player automatic updates
