PORTS AND SERVICES USED BY OMNITOUCH FAX SERVER

IP PORTS USED BY OMNITOUCH FAX SERVER

All fax server components need to communicate with each other for different reasons. To communicate
they use TCP/IP connections. And to do that they need to open IP ports to be ready to receives calls.
The fax server components accept incoming connections on the following IP ports:

Archive: 7596 for IIOP (Internet Inter-Orb Protocol), 7597 for SSLIOP (IIOP over SSL). These can
be modified using the "Service.OAPort" and "Service.OASSLPort" values in the FaxArchive.properties
file.

CoConfig: 7598 for IIOP and 7599 for SSLIOP. These can also be modified using the
"Service.OAPort" and "Service.OASSLPort" values in the CoConfigServer.properties file.

Fault tolerance system: 7802 for IIOP and 7803 for SSLIOP.

Fault notifier: 7806 for IIOP, and 7807 for SSLIOP.

SendFAX to XML gateway: 7809 (SSLIOP).

Host monitor: 7810 (IIOP).

Trader: 7812 for IIOP, 7813 for SSLIOP.

Driver: By default 5061 (UDP) for SIP and 1720 (TCP) for H.323 (TCP), 1718 for Gatekeeper.
Additionally, dynamic UDP ports are used by the Driver for outbound calls and media sessions.
Those are dynamically selected by the OS (see "Ephemeral port range" for details) and will live as
long as the call connection and/or the media session last.

SMTP Gateway: 8825 (TCP) and 25 (TCP) in incoming for SMTP.

Others: Other fax server components use ports dynamically obtained from the range [7600, 7800]
at their startup. Each component uses two ports in that range: One for IIOP, the other for SSLIOP.

The following services are not fax server components, but are installed with the fax server and also
accept IP connections:

Tomcat JSP server: 8080 (TCP).

MySQL: 3306 (TCP). This default can be modified using the MySQL Server Instance Configuration
Wizard, or by writing a line "port=<port_num>" in the [mysqld] section of the "my.cnf" file. If this
value is changed, note that it must also be modified in the database connection information of the
FaxArchive and CoConfig components, as described in the "MySQL databases" section, above.

Ephemeral port range
When a program opens a network socket without requesting a specific port, the OS chooses one from
the ephemeral port range. This is normally the case for all outgoing connections.
On a Linux kernel 2.4 system, the default range is 32768 through 61000 if memory is available.
This range can be specified in the /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_local_port_range file or, using sysctl, with the
net.ipv4.ip_local_port_range parameter.
See http://www.ncftp.com/ncftpd/doc/misc/ephemeral_ports.html for more information.
