What are the Ports used within the Office Solutions range?

Overview

The Phone System Administration application uses various ports in Windows to communicate and receive data from other server applications that are used in the system.  These include:

  1. Today page (Ports 5005/5006 fixed)
  2. ACD page (Ports 7000/7001 fixed)
  3. Call Logging Service (Port 1099 by default, can be changed via the service GUI or the Logging Setup Wizard, accessible by clicking on Configuration from the right click menu in Service Monitor.)
  4. ACD Logging Service (Ports 7000/7001 fixed)
  5. Ticker Tape (Ports 7002/7003 fixed)
  6. Remote Logger Viewer (Ports 5000 and 5001 by default, can be changed in the Call Logging section of Options when Advanced View checked.) Note:  The Voice System Administration application uses the same Today page port.
  7. CTI Server (Port 7005 fixed)
  8. Chat Server (Port 7010 fixed)Detail

The CommsOffice suite consists of several distinct sections.  These are the main applications (Phone and Voice Administration), the services, the Ticker Tape, CTI Client and Console and External Wallboard (among others).  The main applications, the services and the Ticker Tape use the following combinations of ports.  (They have listed them as they are “in a default installation”.  A few of the ports can be changed and those that can be have been noted accordingly. )

Typically you will have one port that is being listened on and another adjacent port that has the data sent on it.  The ports are grouped at the 5000 range for the Today Data functions and the 7000 range for ACD functions and Ticker Tape functions.

  1. Port 1099 – This is the default port setting that the Call Logger listens on for data from the PBX.  This is changeable (as the PBX may not be able to send on a set port)
  2. Port 5000 – This is the default port setting for the Call Logger listening for a command to send raw data from the Call Logger to the Remote viewer.  This is changeable in the Call Logging section of Options with Advanced View checked).
  3. Port 5001 – This is the default port that the Call Logger sends the data on and the Main Application listens on for the data for the remote viewer.  Now this is NOT directly changeable but is by default as it is tied to the above port by a hard coded formula that is “Listening Port # + 1”.  This means if you change the port number for the remote viewer to say 4044, then automatically, the system will change the data port side to 4045 (4044 +1).
  4. Port 5005 – This is the default port setting that the Call Logging Service listens on for requests for the Today Page.
  5. Port 5006 – This is the default port that the Call Logging Service sends the data on when a request has been made on the corresponding port (5005) and in turn the main applications listen on for the data for the Today Page that is sent by the Call Logger.
  6. Port 7000 – This is the default port setting that the ACD Logging Service listens on for requests for the ACD Page.
  7. Port 7001 – This is the default port that the ACD Logging Service sends the data on when a request has been made on the corresponding port (7000) and in turn the Phone System Administration application listens on for the data for the ACD Page that is sent by the ACD Logging Service.
  8. Port 7002 – This is the default port setting that the Ticker Tape (Server) sends on for requests from the ACD Logging Service for the Ticker Tape display.
  9. Port 7003 – This is the default port that the ACD Logging Service sends the data on when a request has been made on the corresponding port (7002) and in turn the Ticker Tape application listens on for the data for the Ticker Tape display that is sent by the ACD Logging Service.

  11. Chat Server (Port 7010 fixed)
