It's in the readme file on the downloads page.

3. Port Usage Information

This section explains which ports are used for communication by the product.

Web Browser to CSA MC communication uses port 443 (https).

Cisco Security Agent to Management Center communication occurs over port 5401

Port 443 is used by default if port 5401 is not available.

Port 80 is also required for agent kit caching.

Analysis Jobs to CSA MC communication occurs over port 5401.

Thank you,

We've bought the Pack CD but don't have downloaded it. And in the CD there is no readme file, but just a ReleaseNote, InstallGuide and USerguide.

Into these documents there is no indocation about port usage information.

Thank you.

You're welcome. I hoped they would include the port usage info in the documentation that ships but it is not so...
