What protocols and ports does the Auvik collector use?


Auvik's collector requires Internet access to upload metadata to the cloud for persistent monitoring and discovery of your network.

Be aware that the Windows service will bind to ports 21 and 69. We recommend you install the service on a system that doesn’t already have services bound to these ports.

In addition to the ports below, if you have a proxy in play, you’ll need to whitelist * to allow connections.

For Auvik to communicate to the cloud, you must allow the following URLs through your firewall and web filters:

URL Port
* 80
* 80, 443

For virtual collectors, you must allow the following URLs:

URL Port
* 80, 443
* 80
* 80, 443
NTP - Policy required:

You'll need to tweak your firewall and/or access list configurations to permit the collector to access the following protocols and ports on endpoints:

Protocol Port
HTTP 80, 8080
HTTPS 443, 8443
DNS 53
NTP 123
