What ports are used by PremiSys?

  • WARNING: PremiSys sets exceptions only for Windows® firewalls on the application and/or IIS server. Any other firewalls must be handled separately.
  • The ports listed below must be open for PremiSys to function over a network. These ports must not be blocked by routers, switches or firewalls.
  • Additional ports may be required for use by third-party systems working in conjunction with PremiSys. PremiSys has no control over, and cannot predict, these additional port requirements.
  • A Windows® firewall exception is made for UDP Port 137, which is used for file share functions.
  • A Windows® firewall exception is made for sqlbrowser.exe, which is used for interactions between the server and the database and the client and the database. Our use of sqlbrowser.exe is in keeping with the specifications Microsoft describes in its MSDN article “Using SQL Server Browser.”
