dsTest Management Ports

dsTest and its utility applications bind to several different TCP ports on its management IP address, and if there is a firewall between dsTest and a client application those ports must be allowed in order to provide full functionality. In addition, if your servers utilize floating licenses a UDP port must be available.

Port

Use

9996

Streaming engine connection to dsClient Desktop for subscriber event log engine evlPipe or CDR streaming engine cdrPipe (closed when not in use)

9997

Streaming engine connection to dsClient Desktop for packet capture streaming engine packetPipe (closed when not in use)

9998

High priority XML/TCP port for client connections (always open)

9999

Low priority XML/TCP port for client connections (always open)

10000

SmartControl (closed when not in use)

10001

10002

dsTest RESTful API

10003-10008

Reserved for future use

10009 (UDP)

Floating License Server (required if dsTest operates under a floating license and for local license servers)

You can customize the XML/TCP and REST ports used when you launch dsTest. With dsClient Desktop you can specify those ports as well as the ports used by the streaming engines.

The netstat command will display the management ports currently used:

[root@test83 devsol]# netstat -anp | grep dsTest
