This topic lists the default ports and protocols used by the various product components, depending on user roles and permissions.
The following information is useful for one-time configurations, daily operations, and understanding how various product components communicate with one another. This information can also be used to decide which ports to open, depending on your security requirements.
For a single server deployment, the Indexer and Configuration Database ports are not accessible from other hosts (by default). In this case, you do not need to set up a firewall for these ports.
