Port 31099?

Post by dgroos » Thu Oct 06, 2011 8:13 pm

Hi,

I need to provide info to the U of Minnesota IT people before they give me a VM on which to install a CmapServer. I told them to open port 31099 as described on this page: http://cmap.ihmc.us/download/DownloadCm ... Plat=Linux but they need to know if that port needs to be open to the campus, world, specific servers etc. I can't find that port mentioned in any other documentation you have.

Also, they would like to be as specific about access as possible. Can you tell me specifically what ip's (or range of ip's) need to access the ports 4747 and 4748 on our CmapServer? I know it's for the DoP's

Thanks for your great software,
David

The range of IPs that need to have the port opened is the range of IPs you want to provide access to your CmapServer. The DOP access is from your CmapServer to the DOP. You must also consider the users outside your organization trying to access the CmapServer.

Thanks acanas.

Question 1:
Do I need to open port 31099 as per the linked page above? If so, what is it for?

Question 2:
Do these ports need to be accessible by 'world' or is a more restrictive access acceptable (criteria--I want our CmapServer to be accessible from anywhere). I didn't get how your reply answered my question, sorry.
4447
4747
4748

Port 31099 is needed if you want your Cmaps indexed by the IndexServer and searchable at www.cmappers.net.

If you need your CmapServer available from anywhere then you cannot restrict the opening of the ports -- they need to be open for everybody.
