The Ports

The following ports incoming must be free and unoccupied for G DATA Management Server:

The following ports should be free for G DATA Security Client (Windows):

TCP 80

TCP 7169

This port does not necessarily have to be free. G DATA Security Client always establishes contact with G DATA Management Server at the set rate (default = every 5 minutes) in order to pick up all information and data. However, when you click Apply, G DATA Management Server contacts the client via port 7169 and informs it that new information is ready for collection. This speeds up the transfer of settings from G DATA Management Server to the client.

Furthermore, this port is used when you want to read the tree structure of client directories in G DATA Administrator, for example when adding exceptions. If the port is closed, this will not work.

TCP 443

This is used by the Linux and Mac clients to log in.

TCP 7161

This is used by the Windows-Clients and the G DATA Exchange Mail Security to log in.

TCP 7182

This is used by the G DATA Administrator to establish contact with the G DATA Management Server.

TCP 7183

This is used by the Android-Clients to log in (until version 15.3.x).

Port 80 and 443 can be changed if necessary (for example, if an Exchange server is installed on the same machine as G DATA Management Server and occupies port 443).
