Sample setup for the target servers located behind a SOCKS proxy server

The following diagram shows a sample setup in which the remote (target) servers that you want to manage are on a different network from the BMC Server Automation system. An Application Server communicates with the remote servers through your SOCKS internet protocol proxy server. The PsExec server, which is required to communicate with a Windows target server, is also present behind the SOCKS proxy server.

The different ports and protocols through which the Application Server, SOCKS proxy server, and PsExec server communicate in this setup are as follows:

PortProtocolSourceDestination
22SSH (TCP)SOCKS proxy serverAgentless device
139-445NETBIOS (TCP)PsExec serverAgentless device
4750RSCD (TCP)SOCKS proxy serverRSCD agent

The following ports need to be open on various computers in a set up in which the remote (target) servers that you want to manage are on a different network from the BMC Server Automation system:

  • 22
  • 139
  • 445
  • 4750
