What are the TCP/IP ports used by TM1?

Technote (troubleshooting)


Problem(Abstract)

What TCP ports are used by the TM1 system?

Environment

Customer is using TM1 (or the FAP functionality inside Controller to publish data to a TM1 cube).

Resolving the problem

By default, TM1 uses the following TCP ports:

  • 5495 - TM1 Admin Host
    • Used by the "Admin Server" on this machine to listen for client requests.
  • 5498 - TM1 SSL server
    • All TM1® components communicate with the TM1 Admin Server using SSL.
    • The Admin Server supports older TM1 clients that cannot use SSL by listening on two ports; one secured, the other unsecured.
  • 12345 - TM1 Server
    • This port number establishes a secondary port for progress messages to use when a lengthy operation is waiting to be cancelled.
  • 49152 -> 65535 - TM1 Architect and Perspectives
    • This port range is required to establish a connection to the TM1 Server.

In addition, if the customer uses Cognos Analysis for Excel (CAFE) then:

  • 9510 - Cognos Analysis for Excel (CAFE)
    • This port number is used by the CAFE Excel add-in to connect to the TM1 host service.


TIP: For more information, see the TM1 installation guide "tm1_install.pdf" ( for example on pages 25 & 26 for version 9.5).
