Trying to find a decent article on which ports are required for agents to be deployed is difficult.

I usually tell clients to create a group policy (for Windows machines obviously) but I’ve included Unix/Linux ports and Network devices below too.


Windows

Action Services Ports
Agent Push Installation Microsoft Monitoring Agent 5723/TCP
File and Print Sharing 137/UDP, 138/UDP, 139/TCP, 445/TCP
Remote Administration 135/TCP, 445/TCP
Agent Repair Microsoft Monitoring Agent 5723/TCP
File and Print Sharing 137/UDP, 138/UDP, 139/TCP, 445/TCP
Remote Administration 135/TCP, 445/TCP
Agent Upgrade Microsoft Monitoring Agent 5723/TCP
File and Print Sharing 137/UDP, 138/UDP, 139/TCP, 445/TCP
Remote Administration 135/TCP, 445/TCP

 

Unix / Linux Server

Action Services Ports
Agent Push Installation scxadmin 1270 TCP/UDP
SSH 22 TCP/UDP

 

Network Device

Action Services Ports
Discovery SNMP 161, 162 UDP

 

For Manual Agent deployment using MOMAgent.msi, you will only need to open 5723/TCP.
