Gavin,

in addition to the document which Jens linked to, I would recommend that you read the document "

Cisco TelePresence Video Communication Server IP Port Usage for Firewall Traversal Deployment Guide (X4 to X7)" which is available in the 'Configuration guides' section for the VCS at www.cisco.com/support.

VCS expressway ports to be open

Thanks All. do we have to open up any ports from VCS expressway to VCS control?

I could't find it in the doc.

VCS expressway ports to be open

Take a look at the firewall traversal section in the admin guide:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/telepresence/infrastructure/vcs/admin_guide/Cisco_VCS_Administrator_Guide_X7-0.pdf

The basic deployment guide has also some fw info:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/telepresence/infrastructure/vcs/config_guide/Cisco_VCS_Basic_Configuration_Cisco_VCS_Control_with_Cisco_VCS_Expressway_Deployment_Guide_X7-0.pdf

also, if you log in to the VCS-C and the VCS-E through the web GUI, go to

Maintenance --> Tools --> Port Usage and you'll get a choice of "Local VCS Inbound ports", "Local VCS Outbound ports" and "Remote Listening ports".

Re: VCS expressway ports to be open

No ports need to be opend from Expressway to Control

The VCS Control opens connections to the Expressway and these are maintained with a keep alive.
