On Machine Running VSM Server¶
- 22: SSH Daemon
Port 22 is not used by ThinLinc per se, but since no ThinLinc installation can work without a running SSH daemon, we list port 22 here. Port 22 is the normal SSH port, but basically any port can be used - the client has support for connecting to any port. Note however that if the SSH daemon on the VSM server is listening on port x, all VSM agents must also have their SSH daemons configured to listen on port x.
- 300: ThinLinc Web Access
By default, ThinLinc’s Web Access service tlwebaccess is available on TCP port 300. Traffic to this port is encrypted (TLS).
- 1010: ThinLinc Administration Interface (tlwebadm)
By default, ThinLinc’s web-based administration interface is available on TCP port 1010. In order to access this interface remotely, port 1010 will need to be reachable. Traffic to this port is encrypted (TLS).
- 9000: VSM server
The VSM server listens on port 9000. The traffic is not encrypted, but sensitive information will only be shared with root or connections originating from a port lower than 1024, from a list of known IP addresses. The protocol used is XML-RPC through HTTP (using a minimal internal HTTP server in the VSM server).
