The following tables identify which ports you need to open in order to use Lightspeed System’s products. For security reasons, only the following ports should be open. Firewalls should not be configured with any port/any address rules inbound to the server as this will leave the server vulnerable to attacks from outside sources. If through troubleshooting procedures an any/any rule is put in place, it must be removed once testing has been completed.
