Abstract

The systems management processors integrated in ThinkSystem, System x, Flex System, and BladeCenter servers use a variety of TCP/IP ports for communication. This document lists them and indicates which ones the administrator can and cannot change. You need to ensure that your network (firewalls and routers) allows communications through these ports for the management processor to function properly.

Introduction

The systems management processors (also known as service processors) integrated in ThinkSystem, System x, Flex System, and BladeCenter servers use a variety of TCP/IP ports for communication. This document lists them and indicates which ones the administrator can and cannot change. You need to ensure that your network (firewalls and routers) allows communications through these ports for the management processor to function properly.

The management processors covered are:

  • XClarity Controller (XCC)
  • Chassis Management Module (CMM and CMM2)
  • Integrated Management Module II (IMM2 and IMM2.1)
  • Integrated Management Module (IMM)
  • BladeCenter Advanced Management Module (AMM)
  • BladeCenter Management Module (MM)
  • Remote Supervisor Adapter II (RSA II)
  • Baseboard Management Controller (BMC)

XClarity Controller (XCC)

The following ports are used by XCC. Ports are either fixed or configurable as noted. For configurable ports, the default port is listed.

Table 1. XCC ports
Port name Port number Fixed or configurable Description
http 80 Fixed Web server HTTP connection (TCP)
https 443 (default) Configurable SSL connection (TCP)
REST over SSL 443 Fixed REST over HTTPS

HTTP 81 Fixed HTTP (TCP). Used for LXCM, only open in the front panel USB interface.
SFTP 115 Fixed SFTP File transfer (TCP)
RDP 3389 Fixed Remote Desktop Protocol USB-to-Ethernet interface (TCP). XCC acts as traffic forwarding between the external network and the host.
VNC 5900 Fixed Virtual Network Computing remote desktop protocol (TCP). XCC acts as traffic forwarding between the external network and the host.
