How To Install The Server Behind A Firewall

If your server is going to sit behind a firewall, you will need to configure the firewall to allow the necessary traffic through.  You need to open the following ports to allow the required traffic to pass through your firewall.

From the Internet to the servers WAN IP address:

  • UDP 1194

From the servers WAN IP address to the Internet:

We strongly recommend that you allow all traffic outbound from the WAN IP of your server to the Internet. We also strongly recommend that any form of traffic filtering is disabled.

However, if you do have to restrict what ports are open outbound - the following ports are required to be open Outbound, from the WAN IP of your EasyConnect server to the Internet:

  • TCP 443
  • TCP 80
  • TCP 6983
  • TCP 6987
  • TCP 53
  • UDP 53
  • UDP 123

From the Internet to the servers iLO IP address:

The following ports are required to be open Inbound AND Outbound to the ilO port. These ports can be changed in the Commissioning Console.

  • TCP 20022
  • TCP 20080
  • TCP 20443
  • TCP 20988
  • TCP 20990
