When Omnicast™ is enabled in your system, you need to create additional firewall rules to allow proper communication between Security Center and external IP video devices.

IMPORTANT: Exposing Security Center to the Internet is strongly discouraged without hardening your system first. Before exposing your system, implement the advanced security level described in the Security Center Hardening Guide to help protect your system from Internet threats. Alternatively, use a trusted VPN for remote connections.

The following table lists the default network ports used by Omnicast™ applications in Security Center. To view the network diagram, click here.

1 Applies to servers hosting one Archiver role. If multiple Archiver roles are hosted on the same server, each additional role uses the next free port.

2 You can have multiple Archiver agents on the same server. Each Archiver agent assigns a unique UDP port to each video unit it controls. To ensure that the UDP port assignment on a server is unique, each additional Archiver agent on the same server adds 5000 to its starting UDP port number. For example, the first Archiver agent uses ports 15000-19999, the second one uses ports 20000-24999, the third one uses ports 25000-29999, and so on.
NOTE: You can manually assign live streaming reception UDP ports from the Resource tab of the Archiver role.
