Ports required by Bigfix

(imported topic written by BetFix91)

I want to establish a relay in a datacentre which is connected by a T1 line to the office with the BES server. I had port 52311(TCP) opened on the firewalls bidirectionally. Do I also need UDP 52311 opened or any other ports. My remote server is not picking up the relay and is generally unresponsive. comments welcome

In short you need to permit both TCP and UDP traffic on port 52311 (or your specified alternative) for a “healthy” BigFix system.
