This documentation refers to a previously released version of BMC Discovery.
See the information on this topic for the latest version (11.2) or version 11.1.

For convenience a summary of ports potentially used is listed here. See other references in the Security section for full details of the use of these ports. Ports that might well be customized in your environment are written in italics.

Scanning and standalone appliance ports

Windows proxy Ports

Proxy port changes in 8.3 SP2

In BMC Discovery 8.3 SP2 and later, proxies are not limited to the default ports. It is also possible to install multiple proxies of each type on a single host. Consequently, in BMC Discovery 8.3 SP2 and later you must check the proxy manager to determine which ports the proxies are using. The defaults are the same as previous releases, but installations of additional proxies use incremental ports. You can also use the proxy manager to modify the port that each proxy uses.
