Winsock Ports used by our software

  • Our software uses one of three port numbers by default and they are TCP ports 26002, 22 and 443.
  • Additionally, the update uses HTTP port 80.
  • The software will select the port for you automatically.
  • Please make sure any software or equipment you have installed has these ports opened bi-directionally.

If you are experiencing connection issues check that these ports are not being blocked by your firewall or network equipment (i.e. modem, router, access points, etc.).
