What ports are being used to receive data?

The UDP and TCP ports that Traffic Sentinel is listening on for measurement data are listed at the bottom of the table. If you intend to use one of these measurement protocols, then you must ensure that any firewall on the server is configured to allow connections from your network devices to these ports. If you are using devices configured automatically via SNMP using the sFlow MIB, then the ports listed as Other Ports must be open too.

Note: If these port numbers need to be changed then they can be configured in the global.prefs file.
