Cisco Unified Communications Manager
Release 8.0(2) TCP and UDP Port Usage


Published: A pril 2, 2010
Revised: June 5, 2010, OL-22220-01

This document provides a list of the TCP and UDP ports that Cisco Unified Communications Manager Release 8.0(2) uses for intracluster connections and for communications with external applications or devices. It provides important information for the configuration of firewalls, Access Control Lists (ACLs), and quality of service (QoS) on a network when an IP Communications solution is implemented.

This document organizes the Cisco Unified Communications Manager TCP and UDP ports into the following categories:

Intracluster Ports between Cisco Unified Communications Manager Servers

Common Service Ports

Ports between Cisco Unified Communications Manager and LDAP Directory

Web Requests from CCMAdmin or CCMUser to Cisco Unified Communications Manager

Web Requests from Cisco Unified Communications Manager to Phone

Signaling, Media, and Other Communication between Phones and Cisco Unified Communications Manager

Signaling, Media, and Other Communication between Gateways and Cisco Unified Communications Manager

Communication between Applications and Cisco Unified Communications Manager

Communication between CTL Client and Firewalls

Special Ports on HP Servers


Note Cisco has not verified all possible configuration scenarios for these ports. If you are having configuration problems using this list, contact Cisco technical support for assistance.


While virtually all protocols are bidirectional, this document gives directionality from the session originator perspective. In some cases, the administrator can manually change the default port numbers, though Cisco does not recommend this as a best practice. Be aware that Cisco Unified Communications Manager opens several ports strictly for internal use.

Ports in this document apply specifically to Cisco Unified Communications Manager Release 8.0(2). Some ports change from one release to another, and future releases may introduce new ports. Therefore, make sure that you are using the correct version of this document for the version of Cisco Unified Communications Manager that is installed.

Installing Cisco Unified Communications Manager 8.0(2) software automatically installs the following network services for serviceability and activates them by default. Refer to Table 1 for details:

Cisco Log Partition Monitoring (To monitor and purge the common partition. This uses no custom common port.)

Cisco Trace Collection Service (TCTS port usage.)

Cisco RIS Data Collector (RIS server port usage)

Cisco AMC Service (AMC port usage)

Configuration of firewalls, ACLs, or QoS will vary depending on topology, placement of telephony devices and services relative to the placement of network security devices, and which applications and telephony extensions are in use. Also, bear in mind that ACLs vary in format with different devices and versions.


Note You can also configure Multicast Music on Hold (MOH) ports in Cisco Unified Communications Manager. Because the administrator specifies the actual port values, this document does not contain port values for multicast MOH.



Note The Ephemeral port range for the system is 32768 - 61000.

Glossary

AXL / SOAP

Cisco Unified Communications XML Layer / Simple Object Access Protocol - API that applications use to read from or write to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager database.

CAPF

Certificate Authority Proxy Function - Used to load X.509 digital certificates into IP phones.

CDLM

Cisco Database Layer Monitor - Used to synchronize the database with what is running in active memory.

CTI

Computer Telephony Integration - Provides a link between telephone systems and computers to facilitate incoming and outgoing call handling and control; the physical link between a telephone and server.

This plug-in comes with Cisco Unified Communications Manager and can be run on any computer that has IP connectivity to all Cisco Unified Communications Managers in the cluster and has a USB port.

DRF

Disaster Recovery Framework

Ephemeral Ports

In virtually all cases, source ports are ephemeral, meaning random within a specified range. When an outgoing request is made, the application solicits the host device for a port from its ephemeral pool. In a few cases, the destination port is also ephemeral, meaning that both the source and destination ports are random.

JTAPI

Java Telephony Application Program Interface - Sun Microsystems telephony programming interface for Java. It provides a set of classes and interfaces that provide access to call control and telephony device control as well as media and administrative services.

LDAP

Lightweight Directory Access Protocol - Used to validate user credentials against the designated directory service.

LDAPS

Lightweight Directory Access Protocol over TLS/SSL - Used to validate user credentials against the designated directory service.

IP VMS
