Ports Used by TimeIPS

Your TimeIPS system requires the ability to communicate via TCP/IP over several ports to be able to successfully update its software and provide other diagnostic information. Listed below are the ports required to be open to allow the TimeIPS network traffic to reach the public Internet and contact our servers. Different routers require different configuration techniques to allow these ports to be open. Please check with your router hardware provider for specific instructions on how to configure your specific router. Please note, port-forwarding is not required, simply the port being open to allow TCP/IP traffic.

Firewall/Router Ports (TCP outgoing) that need to be opened:

These ports need to be open to allow traffic out to the Internet.

Firewall/Router Ports (TCP incoming) that need to be forwarded:

If you have clocks or users outside your local network, these ports need to be "port-forwarded" in your router or firewall.

  • 81 (TimeIPS Remote Clocking) Recommended for remote clocking from outside WAN.
    NOTE: If using port forwarding for remote clocking access, forward incoming remote clocking requests to your master station's LAN IP to port 81.

  • TimeIPS Version 1.0.72 or earlier
