Ports and Protocols

Which ports are required for remote communication between BDNA application servers?

I have found conflicting information in the following links which has confused me. 

Network Ports and Protocols (flexera.com)

BDNA Data Platform 5.5 Installation Help Library - System Requirements (flexera.com)

Changing the Normalize Server Port for BDNA User Console (flexera.com)

If both ports are used, does this image represents where these ports are required to be open?

Hi,

Perhaps someone from Flexera can chime in here.

Whatever the case, I agree that the documentation is inconsistent.

 

In the environment I just set up, this is what the configuration looks like.

In the Norm.Configuration.config file on the Data Platform server, it specifies two variables

BI_CONFIG_NORMALIZE_BI_SERVER_URL (This is the User Console server)

BI_CONFIG_NORMALIZE_BI_SERVER_PORT (this is set by default to 8084)

 

In Norm.Configuration.config the definition of <NormalizeService>  is the 'Flexera Data Platform Service'. In this, the <Port> element is set to 8088.

Once the User Console is configured, the NBI.Configuration.config file on the User Console server specifies a RemotingPort with a value of 8084. Port 8088 is not specified anywhere.
