What is the default port on Splunk Universal Forwarder for Deployment Server to send data


All configurations will be pushed by Deployment Server to Forwarder running on linux box.

What is the default port opened on Forwarder which is used by Server to push the data to forwarder?

Are there any other ports that needs to be opened at Forwarder side? or only one port is sufficient.

My forwarder is inside a hardware appliance. I need to open ports for server to talk to agent.

It works the other ways, it's a pull from the deployment-client to the deployment-server.
so make sure that the forwarders can access the deployment server on management port (default is 8089 tcp).
