Which firewall ports are used in Security Center 5.4?

Answer: There are many ports used Security Center 5.0 and later. Because Security Center is a unified platform that integrates all of Genetec™ products, the list of ports is quite extensive. As a result, it is recommended to familiarize yourself with the ports used by the various core systems and modules of Security Center.

Ports used by core applications

The following table lists the default network ports used by Security Center applications:

Computer Inbound Outbound Port usage
Main server TCP 5500   Directory connection requests
Client workstations (Security Desk and Config Tool)   TCP 5500 Directory connection requests
Client workstations (Config Tool)   TCP 443 Communication with GTAP for SMA validation/sending feedback
Servers (new installation) TCP 5500 TCP 5500 Communication with other servers
TCP 4502 TCP 4502 Backward compatibility. For connections from servers running Security Center 5.3 and earlier.
HTTP 80   Connection through Server Admin
Servers (upgraded from 5.3 an earlier) TCP 4502 TCP 4502 If 4502 was the server port before the upgrade, then 4502 remains the server port after the upgrade, and 4503 is used for backward compatibility.

If another port was used as server port before the upgrade, then that same port is kept as server port after the upgrade, 4502 is then used for backward compatibility, and 4503 is not necessary.

TCP 4503 TCP 4503
Map Manager HTTP 8012   Communication with client applications for map downloads.
System Availability Monitor Agent (SAMA) TCP 4592   Connection from Security Center servers.
  TCP 443 Connection to the Health Service in the Cloud.
Genetec™ Update Service (GUS) TCP 4595 TCP 4595 Connection from Security Center applications and communication with other GUS servers.
  TCP 443 Connection to the Internet.

Ports used by AutoVu™ applications

The following table lists the default network ports used by AutoVu™ applications in Security Center.

Computer Inbound Outbound Port usage
LPR Manager   UDP 5000 Fixed Sharp unit discovery
TCP 8731   Fixed Sharp units and Patrollers
TCP 8832   Genetec Patroller™ hotfix requests
TCP 8787   Pay-by-Plate

Ports used by Synergis™ applications

The following table lists the default network ports used by Synergis applications in Security Center.

Computer Inbound Outbound Port usage
Access Manager UDP/TCP 4070 UDP/TCP 4070 HID VertX/Edge controllers
HID Vertx/Edge EVO controllers
TCP 20 TCP 21, 23 HID VertX/Edge controllers
  TCP 4050 HID VertX/Edge controllers
HID Vertx/Edge EVO controllers
  TCP 22 HID Vertx/Edge EVO controllers
  TCP 2000 Default Synergis unit discovery port (this port can be modified in Config Tool)

The discovery port of an HID unit is fixed at 4070. Once it is discovered, the unit is assigned to an Access Manager that uses the ports shown in the table above to control it.

For more information about initial HID hardware setup, download the documentation from http://www.HIDglobal.com.

Ports used by Omnicast™ applications

Computer Inbound Outbound Port usage
Archiver TCP 555   Live and playback stream requests

TCP & UDP   Vendor specific ports for events and unit discovery
UDP 47806 UDP 47806 Live multicast audio and video streams
UDP 47807 UDP 47807 Live multicast audio and video streams
  TCP 554 or HTTP 80 Typical port used to request video from a unit
Telnet 5602   Telnet Console connection requests
Auxiliary Archiver TCP 558   Playback stream requests
Media Router TCP 554   Live and playback stream requests
Redirector TCP 560   Live and playback stream requests
UDP 8000–12000   Live unicast audio and video streams

UDP 47806   Live multicast video streams
UDP 47807   Live multicast audio streams
  TCP 554–560 Live and playback audio and video requests

1Additional Archiver roles created on the same server will use port numbers that are incremented by 5000. For example, the second Archiver role will use ports 20000-21000, the third one will use ports 25000-26000, and so on.
