Cisco Unified Communications Manager TCP and UDP port usage

Cisco Unified Communications Manager TCP and UDP port usage

This chapter provides a list of the TCP and UDP ports that Cisco Unified Communications Manager uses for intracluster connections and for communication with external applications or devices. You will also find 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.

Port usage

Cisco Unified Communications Manager TCP and UDP ports are organized 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

See Port descriptions for port details in each of the above categories.


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.


Port references apply specifically to Cisco Unified Communications Manager. 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.

While virtually all protocols are bidirectional, directionality from the session originator perspective is presumed. 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.

Installing Cisco Unified Communications Manager 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. Port values for multicast MOH are not provided because the administrator specifies the actual port values.



Note


The Ephemeral port range for the system is 32768 – 61000.
