Opening ports for TopSolid'Server installation

Post by michelle » Thu Sep 28, 2017 2:44 pm

Hello,

To install TopSolid'Server the installation guide says to open ports ​8086, 8088 and 8096 on the server's firewall. I am double firewalled - that is, I have a firewall which runs on the server itself as well as a Cisco firewall at my internet service provider where all traffic to or from the outside world passes through before coming into my network.

Will I need to as my internet service provide to open the same ports on my "external" firewall in addition to the firewall which sits on my server?

I guess an easier way to ask this is - does TopSolid Server communicate with Missler via any of these ports (eg for updating)?

Hi

You should only open those ports in the internal Network. The external network is not affected by this.
