Firewall & Ports

Firewall port sharing (for advanced users)

Firewall port sharing

Usually nothing has to be activated/forwarded in the private area However, company networks are often much more restrictive. Below is a list of the ports used:

Outgoing connections:

  • present4d.net:80
    (Default Http, Online Connection Check)
  • present4d.net:443
    (Default Https, Tour/License Download, Our Webservice, Tour/License Download/Upload via HTTPS )
  • present4d.net:23466
    (Multiuser Master Server, manages all online conferences so that the client can show list of open conferences)
  • present4d.net:50005
    (Facilitator, NAT punch-through, works together with the Master Server. Avoids that port 6666 needs to be forwarded)
  • local:6667
    (UDP Broadcast for finding other conferences within the same local network, without an internet connection / master server)

Incoming connections (listening)

  • local:6666
    (Conference Server Host, used for direct communication between clients. If NAT puncht-hrough fails, port 6666 of the host PC needs to accessible from the internet (e.g. forwarded)
  • local:6667
    (UDP Broadcast for finding other conferences within the same local network, without an internet connection / master server)

Note: Multi user is only displayed in “Offline”-mode in a local network, port 6666 of the host PC must be used for the other devices be accessible. You can then log in directly via the local IP address of the host. If you search and find LAN sessions automatically the host and clients must be able to set UDP packets to Port 6667 to send and receive.
