Network ports and protocols

The following table is a summary of network ports and protocols for various communication channels required for NAM Server, DC RUM 2017 ADS, NAM Probe, NAM Console, TCAM, and other components of NAM.

Be aware that NAM uses third-party software that may require additional ports to be open. For example, Microsoft SQL server uses port 1433, and this port should be opened if your NAM deployment uses a remote database server.
