    TCP port used for patching servers

    William L. Thomas, Jr.

      I have several hundred Windows servers in a PCI domain, separated from other servers including the BladeLogic servers. TCP 4750 is open and most things work fine. However, patching is an issue. Everything works, including the analysis but the patches don't commit. Looking at the logs and it looks like the patch files are not there. My thinking is that there is another port that needs to be open for the files to transfer: sort of like how FTP uses TCP 21 as its "control" port but uses TCP 20 for active FTP data transfers.


      Bottom line, is there additional port or ports besides TCP 4750 that need to be open for patching?


      Related, is there any documentation on the port requirements for BladeLogic. I remember seeing something like that but at the moment I cannot find anything.
