Hi,

An external application wants to use the Commvault API.

There is a firewall between the machine where the external application resides and the Commserve host.

I would like to know which ports, protocol, direction to open between the Commserve & VM containing the external applications.

I cannot find the information in the Commvault documentation.

Many thanks

You should be able to call the API service via port 443.

Hello @brucquat 

As NVFD411 says, we only require 443 for API access to work.

You can test the connection by the following URL:

https://yourWebServer/commandcenter/api

You should receive a response similar to:

Hi,

Thanks for your feedback but I can only see port 81 in the above link:

“You must enter the port number used by the Web Server computer.

For example: http://server.company.com:81/WebServerCore

Thanks
