I have found some KBs on port requirements for K1 and K2, but can't seem to find anything indicating the requirements for Kbox linking. Does anybody know?

I'd guess it connects over HTTP, but I don't have anything to back that up at the moment:

  • I am utterly confused by this line in the K1 KB:

    23 ftp traffic to K1000 N/A Optional <-- out of K1000 FTP

    You got any idea what it's trying to get across? Communication out of K1 but ftp traffic to K1? FTP but is port 23?
    • FTP can be used to pull or upload K1000 backups.


      • Well port 23 is telnet. Is this just a typo?
  • Wow, didn't notice that. I guess it is a typo.

KACE is using port 80 (HTTP) to communicate between the K1000 and K2000 if I'm not mistaking. If you have disabled port 80 access on your appliances you can use port 443.
