Understanding network connections required for Proton

Proton is a multi-tier solution requiring at least a moderate understanding of network ports and associated services. This brief article provides some helpful hints for a functional and secure Proton deployment.

Network connections specifically required for Proton:

  • From the client(s) to the Proton Server web service – HTTPS protocol, port 31068 (unless changed by customer during installation)
  • From the Proton Server web service to the Proton database – likely TCP port 1433 unless specifically provisioned differently
  • From the Proton Manager client (PC running the browser that is accessing the Manager) to the hosted Proton Manager – HTTPS protocol, port 443 (standard)
  • From the Proton Manager client to the Proton Server web service – HTTPS protocol, port 31068 (unless changed by customer during installation)

No connection is made from the hosted Proton Manager web servers to the Proton Server web service directly.  This is by design to help keep sensitive data off the internet and Browsium’s web servers.  The only data currently collected by the hosted Proton Manager is standard website analytics data about page views, locations, etc.
