What port(s) need to be open for the Mobile Access Server for users using outside VPN access?

Communicator

I have my SPLUNK Mobile server on a server that is with company VPN.

Could you please let me know which port(s) should be open for outside VPN so that mobile users can access the Mobile Server?

I know of the default port 443 that may need to be open. Does it require web port (8000), or any other port be open?

Please enlighten. Thanks!

For user access should be only 443 as the app will connect via https TCP/443 to the mobile server.

Thank you! If I change the default port 443 on the Mobile Server (lets says 9001), would the Mobile Device App automatically connect to the Mobile Server on port 9001?

Is it that we mention the port number also while supplying the IP of the Mobile Server on the Mobile Device App?

You can use iptables to forward that port to 443
