Installation – Ports and Firewalls

Installation - Ports and Firewalls

In previous releases, grb_rs required a large range of ports to be open (61000 through 65000 by default). Version 8.0 only requires a single port, which simplifies the installation and the setup of firewalls. The default port depends on the protocol: port 80 for HTTP and port 443 for HTTPS. In order to use these default ports, you will need to be an administrator to start grb_rs, and also make sure that they are not already in use. You can also choose a custom port (e.g., port 61000).

Refer to the sections about starting grb_rs as a standard process or service for more details.
