Required Firewall ports for ESXi

Jump to solution

I plan on placing a single ESXi host in our DMZ.

I need to verify what ports will need to be opened on the internal firewall in order to manage this host.  This is what I have so far:

443  bidirectional - to access the vsphere client

902 and 903 bidirectional - to access console through vsphere client

22 - for use with SSH management

Anything else?

All I really need is to be able to connect via vsphere client and perform typicall management tasks and view the remote consoles of the VM's as well as SSH if needed.

thanks!

Yes, I think this will be fine. Unless you already are aware of it, take a look at http://www.vreference.com/firewall-diagram/ for a great overview of the different ports.

PS: Do you have access to an NTP server in the DMZ?

I have not seen that info.  Great stuff there.

Yes, I would like to synchronize this host with an NTP server and I should have access to one.  If not were you going to suggest making sure 123 is open?

thanks

Yes, that's what I was thinking about.
