perfSONAR Firewall Requirements

perfSONAR Port Requirements / Firewall Rules

perfSONAR includes many services, each of which requires one or more open ports. If you are deploying perfSONAR behind a firewall you will need to change your firewall configuration to allow the following incoming and outgoing ports. Note that in general it is not recommended to run a 10G perfSONAR server (or greater) behind a firewall, as many firewalls can handle large flows. Also note that pScheduler, bwctl and owamp provide their own mechanisms to limit what can connect.

perfSONAR hosts have a default iptables ruleset that is enabled for all required ports. A summary of all required ports for perfSONAR Toolkit operation can be found on the perfSONAR website

ESnet's perfSONAR hosts are in subnets listed on this page
