Control-M :- Server -to- Client Network Ports

Background

Due to a machine crash, we are bringing up a new server for Control-M.

Question for me is to attempt to determine which network ports to open up to allow the new server to communicate with our clients.

 

Generic

Windows

Windows has several tools.

GUI

Resource Monitor

Outline
  1. Launched Task Manager
  2. Task Manager
    • Switched to Performance Tab
    • Clicked on “Open Resource Monitor
  3. Resource Monitor
    • Accessed “Network” Tab
    • Accessed “Listening Ports” group box
    • Reviewed the ports listed for the Control-M processes
    • The Control-M processes are :-
      • p_ctmag.exe
    • Please note the network ports listed for each Control-M process
