I'm trying to piece together a diagram of the communication that takes place between the various ArcGIS Enterprise components for our IT Dept. It seems like such a simple question, but how do Portal and Server communicate and through which ports? Is it A, B, or something else.
*Assumptions: All components are on separate machines except Web Adaptors are together; Web Adaptors are in DMZ; Portal, Server, Data Store are on internal network.
It depends who built and configured it. Typically portal speaks to servers on 6443 and vice-versa on 7443.
I build with web adaptors so it’s all 443.
it really does depend.
By the way. The hosting server and portal also communicate to the data stores on a selection of ports. Most of that is ODBC type traffic rather than web, so web adaptors don’t help. If you build a more extensive deployment with additional server roles then if only increases.
