Dear AG Colleagues,

I now realize that the work I started last December, trying to create a
one-page summary of AG port usage (based on the commendable document created by
Javier Gomez Alonso of the Access Grid Support Centre at the University 
of Manchester) is not easily locatable in the list archives.  I resend it,
attached, along with the Excel version that David E. Bernholdt of ORNL kindly 
created.  As I said earlier, all of these documents are missing some
key information, such as the port ranges used by vic and rat.  I send this out
again in the hope that another AG colleague will pick it up and complete it.
We all really need to have something like this, and i would hope that eventually
it would end up on the AG web site(s), and be maintained to reflect any
coding changes/additions made to AG software.

Best Regards, Rick Rodgers

Summary of AG port usage, based on document "Access Grid Port Usage" by
Javier Gomez Alonso, Access Grid Support Centre, The University of Manchester,
2005, available at: http://www.accessgrid.org/agdp/guide/ports.html
(prepared by RPC Rodgers, Dec 2005)

AG2 client connects to:
   on machine hosting AG2 venue server:
      port 8000/TCP (Virtual Venue Server port)
      port 8002/TCP (Event port)
      port 8004/TCP (Text port)
      port 8006/TCP (Data port)
inSORS IG client connects to:
   port 80/TCP on the inSORS venue server
VIC/IG video connects to:
   the multicast UDP port associated with the multicast IP address
   allocated to the video channel for the Virtual Venue in question
   See http://agschedule.ncsa.uiuc.edu/venues.asp for details;
   also, that multicast UDP port + 1
RAT/IG Audio connects to:
   the multicast UDP port associated with the multicast IP address
   allocated to the audio channel for the Virtual Venue in question
   See http://venues.accessgrid.org/AG/venues.php;  
   also, that multicast UDP port + 1 
   port 47000/UDP on for inter-process communication (rat only)
Jabber client connects to:
   port 5222/TCP on the remote Jabber server
   port 5223/TCP (for encrypted connections using SSL/TLS on older clients)
Jabber server needs to allow external access to:
   port 5222/TCP (client connections)
   port 5269/TCP (server connections)
   port 5269/TCP (other Jabber servers)
   port 5223/TCP (encrypted connections using SSL/TLS on older servers)
   port 7777/TCP on venues.ncsa.uiuc.edu
AG2 - Shared Applications:
   use server, event, text, data ports of venue server; may require other
   application-specific ports
IG Pix client connects to:
   port 80/TCP on IG Pix server
VNC server needs to open:
   port 58xx/TCP (alloes access to small built-in web server)
   port 59xx/TCP (xx is the display number of the VNC session)
VNC viewer connects to:
   port 58xx/TCP of the display server
   port 59xx/TCP of the display server
Distributed PPT (DPPT) server needs to allow:
Distributed PPT (DPPT) client connects to:
   4561/TCP on the DPPT server
   5001/TCP on the DPPT server
Multicast-Unicast bridge clients connect to:
   the bridged video and audio ports, and these ports plus one,
   on the machine hosting the bridge (e.g., for a running on george.ag.mcc.ac.uk
   using video port 50350 and audiot port 50348, open access to ports 50351/UDP,
   50350/UDP, 50349/UDP and 50348/UDP on george.ag.mcc.ac.uk.
inSORS bridge/venue server:
   allow connections to port 554/TCP
AG2 client or VIC/RAT
   allow connections to port 47000/UDP on
