Network Ports

Print Friendly and PDF Follow

In order for Aeon to operate properly, certain network ports are required to be open. There are also some optional ports that may apply to you.

Required Network Ports

In order to allow access to Aeon and its various component parts, the following ports are required to be open.

SQL Ports 1433

Port opened outbound from web server and clients to SQL
Server. This allows the Aeon Client to communicate with
the database. This would only need to be open for the web
server (if separate server) and the Aeon clients to access
the SQL Server. If you have changed the port used by SQL
Server, this port number will be different.

Public Web
443 or 80

Port opened inbound to all or any IP ranges that are
allowed access to the Aeon web forms. This allows
customers to access the Aeon Web pages. This would
need to be open to everyone or could be restricted if you
wanted to limit access to the customer interface (not
commonly done). Aeon's Web Platform requires an SSL
certificate, so most sites are using SSL for their Aeon web
pages as well.

Use port 443 for secure web pages (recommended) or
80 for non-secure pages.

Optional Network Ports

Z39.50 Varies 

If you plan on using Z39.50 to search your local OPAC
from within Aeon, you will need to check that the Aeon
client machines have access to the Z39.50 server over
that port. This port differs with different ILS's so you will
need to verify that value. The client needs to be able to
connect to the port to display local holdings information.


The Aeon web server needs to be able to communicate
with the PatronAPI server outbound to authenticate if
using PatronAPI authentication. While this port is typically
4500, the port may differ based on your unique setup.

LDAP 389 or 636

The Aeon web server needs to be able to communicate
with the LDAP server outbound to authenticate if using
LDAP authentication. The LDAP server needs to allow
traffic from the Aeon web server's IP to request
authentication. Port 389 is used for standard LDAP and
636 is used for SSL.

Remote Desktop

This would be opened only if you wish to allow customer
support to access your Aeon server via Remote Desktop

Aeon Client
File Upload

26710 TCP/26710 port must be open from the client workstation to the Aeon server.
