Connecting through a firewall

System Administrator Guide for Virtual Storage Platform E Series

Part Number

To connect the management client and the SVP through a firewall, configure the firewall so that the TCP/IP port for the protocol you use becomes available.

When attaching Device Manager - Storage Navigator to multiple storage systems, the installer must log in to the SVP of each storage system using separate Device Manager - Storage Navigator sessions and separate web browser instances.

The following table shows the type of the protocol and the port used. When accessing the management GUI directly from the SVP without using the management client, it is not necessary to register ports of protocols other than RMI, SLP, and SMI-S in the table below. For more information about the ports used in software such as middleware and applications that work with the storage system, see the documentation for the software product.

Do not set firewall for ICMP configuration. If you do, alert notifications might not occur. To disable the settings, contact the administrator who manages the firewall.
Note: If you change the port numbers used by the SVP, the firewall is set with the changed port numbers.
  Communication from Communication to
Protocol Port number Hardware Port number Hardware
HTTP Any/TCP Management client 80/TCP SVP
RMI Any/TCP 1099/TCP
RMI (SSL) Any/TCP 5443/TCP
RMI Any/TCP 51099/TCP
RMI Any/TCP 51100 through 51355/TCP*
SMI-S Any/TCP 5989 through 6244/TCP*
* When the storage system is registered, an unused port number is automatically assigned within the specified range and the firewall is set. The assigned port number is used at the start of the storage system.
