This table does not include any ports used in site settings or manually configured media server configurations for streaming to external streaming servers—for example:

Port range in Advanced H.323 Settings in Site Settings.

Network pull port(s) for Windows Media streaming servers. For more information, see the Windows Media Services help topics.

Streaming port range start specified for unicast streaming on QuickTime or Darwin streaming servers; Wowza Media Servers for Flash; or multicast streaming in Windows Media streaming servers or QuickTime or Darwin streaming servers.

Ports for Streaming from the Content Server

Streaming Windows Media from the Content Server uses the following ports:

Table B-2 Ports Used for Streaming Windows Media from the Content Server 

Port
Streaming Media Protocol
Firewall Information

554

RTSP

At least one of these ports needs to be open between the Content Server and the Windows Media player. For true (RTSP) streaming, open port 554. See the note below.

8080

HTTP

 


Note The Windows Media player will automatically use protocol rollover if necessary. The default streaming protocol for the Windows Media player is RTSP on port 554. If the player cannot obtain the stream using RTSP (because the port is blocked on a firewall, for example), then it will automatically rollover to MMS. MMS (port 1755) is a deprecated streaming protocol and is not used as a streaming transport for Windows Media Player version 9 and above. The player will then try HTTP on port 80. The Content Server will redirect any requests for Windows Media streams on port 80 to the correct HTTP port used by the Windows Media Streaming Server on the Content Server (port 8080).


Streaming Windows Media from the Content Server to the Silverlight player uses the following port:

Table B-3 Port Used for Streaming Windows Media from the Content Server to Silverlight Player

Port
Streaming Media Protocol
Firewall Information

8080

HTTP

Needs to be open between the Content Server and the Silverlight player.



Note The Silverlight player will request the stream on port 80 because this is the default HTTP port. The Content Server will redirect any requests for Windows Media streams on port 80 to the correct HTTP port used by the Windows Media Streaming Server on the Content Server (port 8080).


MPEG-4 for QuickTime and MPEG-4 for Flash from Content Server using the default "Local IIS Web Server" media server configuration use the following port:

554

RTSP

At least one of these ports needs to be open between the Content Server and the Windows Media player. For true (RTSP) streaming, open port 554. See the note below.

If using server push in the media server configuration, ensure that the HTTP port is open between the Content Server and the external streaming server.

80

HTTP

 


Note The Windows Media player will automatically use protocol rollover if necessary. The default streaming protocol for the Windows Media player is RTSP on port 554. If the player cannot obtain the stream using RTSP (because the port is blocked on a firewall, for example), then it will automatically rollover to MMS. MMS (port 1755) is a deprecated streaming protocol and is not used as a streaming transport for Windows Media Player version 9 and above. The player will then try HTTP on port 80.


The default setup for a QuickTime or Darwin streaming server uses the following port:
