    Can BEAT run over a different port than UDP 8443?

    BenFB Expert

      We have multiple Unified Access Gateways (UAG) deployed behind a load balancer for remote access to our Horizon View environment. Currently we only allow TCP 443 from the Internet to our UAG for Blast Extreme. We would like to explore adding Blast Extreme Adaptive Transport (BEAT) which defaults to UDP 8443. I looked at the documentation and it indicates that you can run BEAT over UDP 443 but I'm not clear on how to do that.


      We have our Blast External URL configured for 443 per the documentation. However, when initiating a connection to the UAG we see that it is still attempting to use UDP 8443.


      Blast TCP and UDP External URL Configuration Options

      Blast uses the standard ports TCP 8443 and UDP 8443. UDP 443 can also be used to access a desktop through the UDP tunnel server. The port configuration is set through the Blast External URL property.

      In addition do we need to configure IP forwarding rules? If so does anyone have an example of what that would look like?

      To configure ports other than the default, an internal IP forwarding rule must be added for the respective protocol when deployed. The forwarding rules might be specified on the deployment in the OVF template or through the INI files that are input through the PowerShell commands.
