Networking and ports for platform services and Cloud Storage Pools

If you plan to use platform services or Cloud Storage Pools, you must configure grid networking and ports to ensure that the destination endpoints can be reached.

To ensure that platform services messages can be delivered to the configured endpoints, you must configure the network or networks containing ADC Storage Nodes. Similarly, to ensure that ILM rules can move objects to and from a specified Cloud Storage Pool, you must configure the network or networks that contain your grid's Storage Nodes.

By default, platform services and Cloud Storage Pool communications use the following ports:

  • 80: For endpoint URIs that begin with http
  • 443: For endpoint URIs that begin with https
  • 8082: For external HTTPS communications received by a Gateway Node
  • 8084: For external HTTP communications received by a Gateway Node

A different port can be specified when the endpoint is created or edited.

If you use a non-transparent proxy server, you must also configure proxy settings to allow messages to be sent to external endpoints, such as an endpoint on the internet. See administering StorageGRID to learn how to configure proxy settings.
