What ports are used for communication between Policy Manager Server and Linux Security 64 ?
Check connectivity from host to Policy Manager Server using HTTP Browser. If your Linux host does not have GUI, check connectivity using these commands:
curl -o https-host -k https://:PMS_address:port_number
curl -o http-host http://:PMS_address:port_number
Linux Security 64 uses HTTP and HTTPS connections, therefore port numbers that are set for these protocols needed to be allowed.
By default, these are the port numbers:
HTTP : 80
HTTPS : 443
The same port is used for:
- downloading updates,
- downloading base-policies from the Policy Manager Server (settings),
- uploading status information to the Policy Manager Server.
