• Hi,

    I have an existing FOG server version 1.2.0 and Ubuntu 14. I am adding a few Storage Nodes to the servere at different locations, but i need to know what ports that need to be opened in the Firewall for the client and the Storage Node.

    I have found what ports are used but its a bit vague… https://wiki.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php/FOGUserGuide#Full_Listing_of_Ports_used_by_FOG_server_and_client

    The clients on the same sites as the Storage Nodes will be on the same subnet as the Storage Node so that won’t be an issue.

    So my question is:
    What ports need to be open from the clients to the main server?
    What ports need to be open for communication between the Storage Node and the Main server?
    Also the transfer ports are a bit large range, can that be reduced?

  • Thanks for the reply.

    I setup a router to be able to test the ports for the storage node. So far these are the only ports i needed to open:

    FTP – tcp 20,21
    HTTP - tcp 80
    SSH – tcp 22

    I haven’t tried to register a new host and install it yet, but now the Dashboard displays the Storage Node, and image replication works.

  • That list is pretty accurate. I added MySQL to the list for a certain configuration that I think we will be recommending more in the future.

    The transfer port range you see is for imaging, not communications between main fog server and nodes. Those large port ranges are for the nodes to the clients.

    Clients need all of the ports listed in that article opened to the main server, and need all the transfer ports, FTP ports, and NFS ports open to nodes.

    I don’t think the transfer port range can be reduced.

    Hope that helps.
