Direct communication between web server and db server required?
I´m putting together an infrastructure diagram for Archer 6.6 at the moment. The three main components (Web, Services, Database) will be installed on three different servers. My question is: do I need to allow direct communication between the web- and the database server? If so, what is it used for (what protocols / ports)? If it´s just the ACP that requires that communication path, can the ACP be installed on the services server as well or can that cause problems?
I checked the "Port Usage" section in the platform security guide and I found the web server in the "Source" column where the target was the SQL server - but if it´s just for the ACP, would installing that on the services server be a workaround?
Thank you for your help!

I checked the guide and the Port Usage section. But the question is, if that´s still required if the ACP is installed on the Services Server.
