Default Quantellium servers / listener ports
Quantellium, the monitoring daemon, can be accessed through a web interface and needs to open a number of listener ports. The Windows operating system blocks inbound connections by default, but the MonitorONE G2 setup program automatically adds a base set of firewall rules at installation time. Quantellium attempts to start the following servers by default:
- The Web interface on port 8080 (http) and on port 443 (https)
- The SNMP Trap server (port 162, udp)
- The Syslog server (port 514, udp)
- The TFTP server (port 69, udp)
To enable or disable servers or to apply alternative ports follow these steps for an existing project:
- Logon as administrator
- Select Administration | Projects from the main menu at the left
- Modify the “Current Project Bindings” table according to your needs
- Press [Apply] to save the new settings

The Windows Firewall with Advanced Security is a host-based firewall that runs on Windows Server 2008 and newer and is turned on by default. The MonitorONE G2 setup program adds all basic rules automatically but you can fine-tune these settings afterwards. Firewall settings are managed from within the Windows Firewall MMC. To configure the firewall follow the instructions below (Windows 2012 server).
- Open the Server Manager from the task bar.
- Click the Tools menu and select Windows Firewall with Advanced Security.
- Select Inbound Rules under Windows Firewall with Advanced Security on the left side of the management console.
- From the right side click New Rule.
- Select Port and then Next.
- Select TCP and enter 8080 into the Specific local ports input box. Click Next.
- Select Allow the connection and click Next.
- For the “When does this rule apply” question, select one (or all =default) of the radio-buttons depending on your environment and click Next.
- Enter a meaningful name for your rule i.e. “Quantellium web interface on tcp port 8080” into the Name box, do the same for the Description box and click on the Finish button.
- Follow the same steps for port 443 (https/tcp) and ports 162 , 514 and 69 (udp).
