Prepare the Network (Appliance)

The default Gateway configuration listens on port 8080 for standard service requests and port 8443 for encrypted service requests over SSL. Administrative requests from the Policy Manager take place over port 8443. The browser version of the Policy Manager is accessed by either port 8443 or 9443. Before configuring the Gateway, you need to configure your network firewalls to allow for message and administrative traffic.

Before configuring the Gateway, you need to configure your network firewalls to allow for message and administrative traffic.
If the default endpoints are changed during configuration of the Gateway, or later by the Policy Manager, the network firewalls must be reconfigured to reflect these changes.
Gateway Cluster Considerations
On a secured network, Gateway cluster nodes are usually located near each other. Network administrators should be aware of the following settings and prepare the network accordingly.
  • Database nodes replicate over port 3307 and are queried over port 3306.
  • Requests between nodes for log viewing and other tasks are performed over port 2124.
  • Each cluster node listens on port 8777 for replay protection synchronization messages.
