WCS behind a firewall

We are moving the wcs (7.0.164) and MSE (7.0.105) servers behind a stateful firewall. Which inbound ports are needed open in the firewall for the controllers to comunicate with the application?

Thanks for any info.

Jorge.

WCS uses the following ports:

Advent   Net (WebNMS)

2000

Database

1315

FTP

21

HTTP   Connector

8456

HTTP   Connector Redirect

8457

HTTP

80

HTTPS

443

RMI

1299

TFTP

69

SNMP

161, 162

Web   Container

8009

Location   Server

8001

For the controller to talk to the access points you need to allow capwap or lwapp ports.

Re: WCS behind a firewall

Hi Lucien,

Thank you for this answer.


The list provided in the Prerequisites section of the "Cisco Wireless Control System Configuration Guide" (release 7.0, pg 2-1)is not exaclty the same:

- HTTP: configurable during install (80 by default)
–HTTPS: configurable during install (443 by default)
–1315
–1299
–6789
–8009
–8456
–8005
–69
–21
–162
–8457

Moreover, on the Wireless Control System (WCS) Troubleshoot FAQ web page (http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps6305/products_qanda_item09186a00807a60f0.shtml), they talk about the UDP port 169 (trap receiver). I suppose it is an error and they mean UDP port 162.

Can you confirm that the ports list you provided is correct?

Thank you.
