Bitdefender GravityZone (cloud console) Communication Ports

The following table provides information on the ports used by Bitdefender GravityZone (cloud console) components.

You need to have these ports open and to exclude all addresses mentioned in this table from any gateway security solution or network packet inspection so that GravityZone functions flawlessly.

note Note:

It is recommended that you do not use solutions for inspecting or scanning the traffic between endpoints, relays and Bitdefender servers, because they may change the checksum and therefore damage the downloads.

(*) Since the relay is an update server that needs to listen all the time on a port, Bitdefender provides a mechanism able to automatically open a random port on localhost (127.0.0.1), so that the update server can receive proper configuration details. This mechanism applies when the default port 7074 is used by another application. In this case, the update server tries to open the 7075 port to listen on localhost. If 7075 port is also unavailable, the update server will search for another port that is free (in range of 1025 to 65535) and successfully bind to listen on localhost.
