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:

  1. The Web interface on port 8080 (http) and on port 443 (https)
  2. The SNMP Trap server (port 162, udp)
  3. The Syslog server (port 514, udp)
  4. The TFTP server (port 69, udp)

To enable or disable servers or to apply alternative ports follow these steps for an existing project:

  1. Logon as administrator
  2. Select Administration | Projects from the main menu at the left
  3. Modify the “Current Project Bindings” table according to your needs
  4. Press [Apply] to save the new settings

Verify that non of the configured ports have already been assigned to another process!

Windows firewall

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).

  1. Open the Server Manager from the task bar.
  2. Click the Tools menu and select Windows Firewall with Advanced Security.
  3. Select Inbound Rules under Windows Firewall with Advanced Security on the left side of the management console.
  4. From the right side click New Rule.
  5. Select Port and then Next.
  6. Select TCP and enter 8080 into the Specific local ports input box. Click Next.
  7. Select Allow the connection and click Next.
  8. For the “When does this rule apply” question, select one (or all =default) of the radio-buttons depending on your environment and click Next.
  9. 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.
  10. Follow the same steps for port 443 (https/tcp) and ports 162 , 514 and 69 (udp).
