The SST (formerly DSP) uses default, well-known ports for communications. However, ports can be customized and alternative ports used. If this is required, then it can be accomplished via configuration of applications and services that support SST, such as IIS and MS SQL Server. There is no direct configuration in SST required to use an alternate port number.
The SST (formerly DSP) is a web-based application that uses TCP port 80 (HTTP) by default to accept communications via the web site. However, the SST could use an alternate port, such as:
- 443 if HTTPS is in use or
- Any other port configured in IIS (i.e., not configured in the SST)
The application server connection to the SQL Server uses TCP port 1433 (TDS) by default. It can be configured to use another port using the SQL Server Native client, external to the SST.
The SST uses SMTP to connect to the mail server using TCP port 25. This cannot be changed from within the SST.
SDR (formerly DBMoto) uses port 58361 for the Server Agent and port 58360 for the Data Replicator. Otherwise, SDR uses the standard communication port to connect to each database type (1433 for SQL, 8471 for iSeries, 5432 for PostgreSQL, etc).
