Hi Team, 

 

I allow port 80 to the server so that PS can work. But security team concern in why we are not using default port 

By default PowerShell will use the following ports for communication (They are the same ports as WinRM)

 

TCP/5985 = HTTP

 

TCP/5986 = HTTPS

 

Please guide on this

    You tagged your post with SSRS=Reporting Services.

    That is a web server and default port for http is 80, and for https it's 443, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_TCP_and_UDP_port_numbers

    So I don't understand your post/concernes.

    Hello,

     

    Thank you for posting in Q&A forum.

    It's totally understandable about your security team's concern.

    As Port 80 is most used by http service and it might face some port attack issue and hard to be managed.

    You can configure the PowerShell used port as any other port you want to avoid such issue, meanwhile you will also need to follow your security team's indicator and insights.

    To help other customers who may be facing the same issue, please don't forget to vote if the reply is helpful.

     

    Best regards,

    Jill Zhou
