What are ports ports 8129, 8128, and 1755 used for?

Why are they listening and do they need to be open for external internet access?

As best I can tell, the ports are used like this:

1755 - Remote streaming. You can not view your recorded material from a remote connection unless this is enabled and the port is configured. Shouldn't affect local (LAN) viewing though.

8129 - Remote Admin access to SnapStream settings. Open this port to connect to your SnapStream Admin services from remote (using the browser). This is probably the most important port to have configured. You won't be able to do anything from remote without it.

8128 - Not positive, but I think it provides some sort of slave connection for clients that want to connect to a SnapStream server. Quite possibly to run SnapStream as a service for whatever purpose. It's probably the least important port to have configured and isn't even supported in the demo version I believe.

Cheers,

ports 1755 and 8129 have been described accurately by thesherlock.

Port 8128 is used for a master/slave connections which is no longer supported by version 2.0 hence you dont need to worry about port 8128.

Port 8080 is another port that the program uses. This port is used to watch a live recording through media player.

Are these all TCP or does UDP have to be opened, and on which ones?

I think these are TCP ports, however, if your firewall software allows you to configure both protocols for these ports, I would recommend that (TCP and UDP for each port).

Configure your firewall for TCP and UDP for all the 4 ports.

I've opened 8129, 1755, and 8080 (all on TCP only) and everything seems to be working fine from the outside (web admin, watching, and streaming live). Are the UDP equivalents really necessary? I'd prefer not to open anything that isn't really needed. But if I'm missing something let me know.

BTW 2.0 is rock solid for me. Nice work!

mportune:

if everything is working fine, no need to open the udp ports. It is sometimes necessary to open UDP for some users and hence you cant go wrong with opening both UDP and TCP.
