Network Communication

In this chapter you will find all information about firewall, ports and servers.

Upload, Download, Connection Check

For network information regarding the Conference Mode click here: Ports used by Conference Mode

Our application makes standard GET and POST requests using HTTP and HTTPS to the following servers:








Http/s Requests

Our Http/s requests are nothing special and work like they do on any Internet Browser or Application.

  • Used Transfer Protocol: TCP

  • Destination Ports: 443 (https) or 80 (http)

  • Source Ports: 49152 - 65535 (See explanation below for details)

  • In response packets that are send from the server to a client, destination and source ports are switched

Because the server is just responding to the client Port-Forwarding is not required. But incoming and outgoing traffic needs to be allowed for our application in the source port range.


When a http/s request is made, a TCP connection is established between a “port” (a communication point) on the client (your device) and the server. One can imagine it as a communication-wire, that is connected to numbered sockets on both devices. A port is “blocked” while it’s in in-use and can’t be used by other requests at the same time. So by default the operating system (E.g. Windows) randomly picks a source port from the Ephemeral Port Range for each request. This port on your client is then used to send the Http/s request and to receive the corresponding response from the server. The destination port on the server is by default always 448 for https and 80 for http connections.

This behavior is low-level and the same for all applications that do http/s requests. It’s beyond the possibilities of our application to change this. It is possible, though, to define different port range within the operating system, but we do not recommend this and can’t support it, if you are running in any issues.

Server License Manager Prot

Windows Defender Port 12422 must be allowed. Especially on Windows Server.

Conference Mode

Ports used by Conference Mode

(Multiuser Master Server, manages all online conferences so that the client can show list of open conferences)

(Facilitator, NAT punch-through, works together with the Master Server. Avoids that port 6666 needs to be forwarded)


(UDP Broadcast for finding other conferences within the same local network, without an internet connection / master server)


(TCP/UDP - Port used for sending Multiuser data)

Port forwarding

This is usually not required. If you can see a conference from the internet but you can’t joint it, the automatic NAT-punch-through failed. In this case the conference creator needs to change the network settings, so that the router forwards port 6666 to the device used to host the conference.

Local Server License Manager

The new Server License Manager (SLM) simplifies the management of licenses and editor seats. the VR-Suite connects to the SLM when the editor mode is started. If there are still enough editor seats available, the editor mode starts. Otherwise a message appears that currently no editor seats are available.
