Question regarding agent communication

Jump to solution

Hi all,

I do have a question regarding the dataflow (communication and ports) between the Agent/Beacon/FlexeraOne.

Agent => Beacon and from there the data will be uploaded to FlexeraOne

What are the ports that needs to be open for that communication? Are these the ports from point 14 over here?

Or are there any additional ports that need to be open?

Thanks for the help.

Best regards

Michael

Yes, the diagram is generally correct.  Keep in mind that:

1) The agent initiates all communication with the beacon

2) Network traffic between the agent and the beacon is 2-way

3) The agent performs HTTP PUT/HTTP GET commands.  If configured for a secure connection, the agent performs HTTPS PUT/HTTPS GET commands.

4) The default configuration for agent/beacon communication is HTTP:80, but can be configured for HTTPS:443

On the diagram, all of the URLs and Ports between the Beacon and Flexera One is correct.  As with the agent, keep in mind that:
1) The Beacon initiates all communication to Flexera One

2) Traffic is 2-way (HTTPS GET, HTTPS PUT)

3) TLS 1.2 must be enabled on the Beacon Server
