Communication paths

The CDP has a server-client relationship with the other peers in the environment. Other peers, such as the AP and the LAP, maintain peer-to-peer relationships. The following diagram maps communication paths and directions in a typical BMC Atrium Orchestrator environment.


In the diagram, embedded RSSO and an external BMC authentication service are shown. Your environment will use one of these options.

For more information about communication port requirements and how ports are used in these communication paths, see Communication port requirements.
