Is there any way , we can check if all the required ports for VCSc and VCSe configuration are opened on firewall through some utility or some commands?
I am going to proceed fir VCSe config with VCSc and I want to make sure that all the required ports for H323/SIP/RTP etc are open , without relying on Customer's Network Admins
Any reply in this regard would be appreciable.
Vyopta has v22.214.171.124297 of the TANDBERG port tester available on their website;
works with VCS-E
I think this utility is not been updated for quite sometime. Basically its easy if you see the firewall deplyoment guide to get the ports required and capture a tcp dump and you will get the idea on this..
below are the ports what you requite basically between internal to DMZ
|Source||Destination||Source Port||Destination Port||Description|
|TMS Server/mangment subnet||VCS-Expressway||Any||TCP-80/443||Administration|
|VCS-control ||VCS-express||TCP-25000-29999||TCP-7001||SIP – Signalling|
|VCS-control ||VCS-express||UDP-50000-52399||UDP-2776||SIP – RTP/RTCP|
|VCS-control ||VCS-express||UDP-1719||UDP-6001||H.323 – Initial RAS connection|
|VCS-control ||VCS-express||TCP-15000-19999||TCP-2776||H.323 – Q.931/H.225 Signalling|
|VCS-control ||VCS-express||TCP-15000-19999||TCP-2776||H.323 – H.245|
|VCS-control ||VCS-express||UDP-50000-52399||UDP-2776||H.323 – Assent RTP/RTCP|
The port tester “IPT.exe” is developed for port testing to Boarder Controller product and haven’t updated for some time already.
Please note that this tool may use against VCS for testing H.323 connectivity but may not cover all requirements.
Cisco is currently plan for releasing update version of port tester in 2013 including SIP port testing capability.
Yes, that is expected result as original IPT program point to test BC server hosted by TANDBERG which has removed after Cisco acquisition.
