LO29851: DOC APAR: WHICH TCPIP PORTS DOES LOTUS NOTES TRAVELER USE?
Closed as documentation error.
Its not clearly documented in Infocenter which ports are used by Traveler and that they need to be open in their firewall. It is only mentioned here: http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/domhelp/v8r0/index.jsp? topic=/com.ibm.help.lnt.doc/Creating_bootstrap_file.html It could be emphasized better during the planning or install sections. Here are the details from the technote that was written: Question: Which TCPIP ports does Lotus Notes Traveler use? Solution: Lotusﾩ Notesﾩ Traveler uses two ports to communicate between server and device: Port 80 (non-SSL) or 443 (SSL) is used for transferring data between Domino server and the device. When using SSL, Lotus Mobile Connect, or another VPN solution, the data is securely transferred. Port 8642 is used for Autosync notifications between device and server. The data passed on this port is of two types: 1) checking if the device is available and 2) when to autosync because of new email or PIM updates. The Autosync port is configurable from the 'Lotus Notes Traveler' tab in the Domino Administrator client. If changes are made, don't forget to update the device configuration too (via the bootstrap file or 'Settings' in the client). Both ports need to be available through firewalls or the DMZ if devices will be connecting from outside your internal business network.
