Required ports to be opened for MWG

Jump to solution

Hi guys,

I am trying to search for a list of ports to be opened for the McAfee Web Gateway, but to no luck.

Maybe you could help me out if you know a site or a link that has this list.

Thanks!

Best Regards,

Philip

Hello,

what ports are you looking for? Those MWG requires for incoming or outgoing connections?

For Incoming we have (for example):

9090 for the proxy

4711/4712 for the UI

For Outgoing we have (for example):

443 for updates

445 for NTLM Authentiaction

389 for LDAP Authentication

80/443 for Internet Access

Please note that if possible MWG may work better with no restrictions for outgoing connections. In case a web site uses a custom port such as 8000 MWG will have to talk to that port, otherwise the end-user will not be able to browse that site. Depending on which authentication method you use or with what other systems you interact additional ports may be required.

Best,

Andre

You can check it inside of your MWG.
