Before our official documentation for VMM 2008 comes out, I wanted to outline for everyone all the ports that VMM 2008 RTM will use (almost all of these are the same for beta). Some of these ports are configurable during VMM setup – for those ports, I listed the default option.

 

SQL ports required by VMM:

Port 1433 for remote SQL instance

Port 1434 for SQL browser service

 

VMM server ports required:

Port 80 for Windows Remote Management (wsman)

Port 443 for BITS

Port 8100 for WCF connections to PowerShell/GUI

 

VMM Agent (host or library) ports required:

Port 80 for wsman

Port 443 for BITS

Port 3389 for regular RDP if you are connecting to a VM from the VMM Administrator Console on a PC that is not running Win2k8 or Vista SP1

Port 2179 for glass console view of VMs (VMConnect.exe equivalent) for Hyper-V hosts (this is where you connect to a VM by RDP’ing to the host)

Port 5900 for VMRC on virtual server hosts
