Review and open ports for WHD to support communications to and from the WHD server. These secure and non-secure ports are used to access the following WHD resources:
- WHD interfaces
- External and embedded databases
- Email traffic
- LDAP and Active Directory
- Asset Discovery
- Firewall port requirements for data traffic
The following table lists the WHD ports for secure and non-secure interface traffic.
|80||TCP||HTTP communications with Microsoft Exchange Web Services (EWS)|
|443||TCP||Secure traffic from the WHD Administrator Console|
|8081||TCP||Non-secure traffic from the WHD Administrator Console (Windows, Linux, macOS)|
|8443||TCP||(Default) Secure traffic from the WHD Administrator Console (Windows, Linux, macOS)|
|61616||TCP||WHD Discovery engine (JMS queue port)|
The following table lists the WHD ports for external and embedded database communications.
Communications with a Microsoft SQL external database, including:
Communications with a MySQL external database (such as Casper 8 and lower)
Beginning in WHD 12.7.3, LANrev is no longer supported.
|5432||TCP||Communications with an External PostgreSQL database|
|17778||TCP||Communications from the SolarWinds Orion server (Orion integration only)|

|636||TCP||Secure traffic from the WHD to a designated server (usually a domain controller) for use with the Directory Service tool (LDAP, Active Directory)|
The following table lists the WHD ports for Asset Recovery.
Asset Discovery using Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI).
For WMI calls, use port 135 and then choose a random port for further communication.
|1521||TCP||Communications with the Oracle Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) connector for asset discovery|
|3306||TCP||Communications with the MySQL external database, LANrev, and Casper 8 and lower|
|4445||TCP||Remote log server reader|
|5433||TCP||Communications with Apple Remote 3.2 for asset discovery|
|7100||TCP||Communications with a Sybase database for asset discovery|
Firewalls between any two points of communication must have the requisite ports open to inbound or outbound traffic according to the relative direction of the communication traffic.
