Which ports need to be open for Site Administrator for SharePoint to run on server not connected to SharePoint Server?

Which ports need to be open for Site Administrator for SharePoint to run on server not connected to SharePoint Server?

This question has been answered by DELL-Andrey M

Please provide the same in details.

From Site Administrator server to SharePoint SQL server
From Site Administrator Server to front -end Server etc,

Below is my understanding from user guide

1) 3143: incoming (localhost ONLY. This port should not be opened outside the server).
2) SQL ports. The default instance of the Database Engine uses port 1433. (It our case it will be 1600) . Please confirm do we need bi-directional  ?
3) WIM/RPC port 135 and 445   :- RPC port are optional

In summary we have only open ports for SharePoint SQL Server port for Site administrator.

  • Looks like Backend DB server and SharePoint SQL server are the same. Right? Any way Site Admin does not query any SharePoint servers directly. It fetches all the information from SharePoint cofiguration and content databases and SiteAdmin configuration DB. So SQL server port is the only one that should be opened - 1433. So it's not necessary for Site Admin to have opened any ports on these servers:

    Index Server

    Query Server

    Frontend Web Server

  • Information Portal server needs:

    3141: incoming (Apache Web Server listens on this port) - browser is a client for this port

    3142: incoming (the agent service implemented as the cherrypy web server http://www.cherrypy.org/listens on this port)

    3143: incoming (localhost ONLY. This port should not be opened outside the server).

    SQL server:

    1433 (1600 in your case) - incoming should be enough

    SharePoint Server:

    WMI/RPC ports. Services typically use 135 and 445 ports to communicate using Remote Procedure Calls (RPC) and Distributed Component Object Model (DCOM). In addition, RPC uses the port range of 1024 to 5000 for allocating ports for endpoints. You can configure custom port range. Refer to the following articles for detailed information:

    How to configure RPC to use certain ports and How to configure RPC dynamic port allocation to work with firewalls.

    If you use Windows firewall, you may enable the Allow remote administration exception policy to allow WMI connection. Refer to the

    Connecting Through Windows Firewall article for detailed information.

    Once you have added the required farm, you can close WMI/RPC ports.

  • Can you clarify for each server below what ports i need to request opened to allow for SITE ADMIN to query the below servers ?

    Frontend Web Server

    Index Server

    Query Server

    Backend DB server

  • Thank You Andrey. I will make the request to my Firewall Team.

  • One moment to clarify: we have one report - Server which access all SharePoint servers via WMI - so if you want to see free disk space in reports - you have to open WMI ports there.

    And for Add Farm (need once) - we also need WMI ports for one front-end (any)
