Refer to the following diagram and port table to ensure that all the relevant ports are opened for components in your NetWitness Platform deployment to communicate with each other.

See NetWitness Endpoint Architecture at the end of this topic for individual Endpoint Architectural diagrams.

NetWitness Platform Network Architecture Diagram

The following diagram illustrates the NetWitness Platform network architecture including all of its component products.

Note: NetWitness Platform core hosts must be able to communicate with the NetWitness Server (Primary Server in a multiple server deployment) through UDP port 123 for Network Time Protocol (NTP) time synchronization.

Event Stream Analysis Network (Packets) Architecture Diagram with Ports

The following diagram illustrates the Event Stream Analysis network architecture with packet capture.

Event Stream Analysis (Logs) Architecture Diagram with Ports

The following diagram illustrates the Event Stream Analysis network architecture with log collection.

NetWitness Platform Firewall Requirements Summary

The following table lists all the ports that need to be open in your firewall by host.

Note: The "NW Server" host ports apply to both the Primary and Warm Standby NW Server. Synchronization between the Primary and Warm Stanby is done through TCP Port 22.
