TCP/UDP ports between Cisco PI 2.0 and WLC5508

Hello,

I will install Cisco PI 2.0 behind a firewall for security reason. The WLC5508 is before a firewall. Can anybody let me know which TCP/UDP ports need to be open specifically between the Cisco PI and WLC? I don't see that from the below link.

Thanks,

Robert

HI Robert,

If the Controller is behind a firewall, make sure that the UDP ports 161 and 162, which are used for SNMP communication between PI and WLC, are opened.

PI cannot communicate with WLC if it is behind a NAT device. This is not a supported configuration. The PI server needs direct IP connectivity to the controller.

Firewall Between the WCS and Controller or WCS and the WCS User Interface

When a PI server and a PI user interface are on different sides of a firewall, they cannot communicate unless these ports on the firewall are open to two-way traffic:

  • 80 (for initial http)

  • 69 (tftp)

  • 162 (trap port)

  • 443 (https)

Open these ports in order to configure your firewall to allow communications between a PI server and a PI user interface.
