Question
What Interfaces and Ports Need to Be Opened for Proper Communication with MSP v3?
What ports are required by MSP 3 ?

Facts: Depending on the FTP Mode used (Active vs. Passive), additional ports are required. Standard FTP normally uses port 21 for initial connection and then a random port above 1024 ( chosen by the FTP server service). While some ports used by devices cannot be changed, the port used by the Workstation PC can be remapped for NAT Traversal.

Environment
  • MSP v3
