Complete port listing Telepresence products

Hi All,

I keep bumping into some problems regarding ports within the Telepresence portfolio. If i read the documentation portlist are always given, but not in a usable form. In order to convince the network administrators we need to list the ports different.


DescriptionSource DeviceSource PortDestination DeviceDestination PortRemarkTransport
VCS Control to MCUVCS Control>1024MCU5060Sip SignallingTCP

VCS Control>1024MCU5060Sip SignallingUDP

VCS Control>1024MCU1719RAS H.323UDP

MCU50000:54999VCS Control50000:54999H.323 / H.245TCP

MCU>1024VCS Control5060SIP SignallingTCP

This list for every system, like Lync integration, MXP, C-Series, CUCM, etc..

Is there a list like this?

Many thanks!

You could have a look at VCS Port Usage on the web gui. There are all inbound and outbound ports listed and of if applicable a link to change port ranges.

Hi Paul,

That is actualy quite handy. But i am looking for the full list.

Right now its compiled as a flat list, but I would like to see to where the ports are going. So where does port 500 go to, where does port range 50000-54999 go to. These are obviouse ones, but i hope you know what i mean.

Its more easy for network administrators if we can provide them with a list that resambles my example above.

Hi Pieter,

I understand your problem , however you need to be little specific on which particular ports you require when deploying TP setup for customer or for your own network . The reason I am writing this down is , Cisco recommends and have published different guides for particular deployment scenario. For Eg -

  • There is a particular port guide for VCS control and VCS expressway.
  • There is a particular port guide for deploying VCS with Lync Server
  • There is particular port guide for deploying Endpoints with respect to H323/SIP which consists of H323/SIP ports along with Media ports.

Hence, you can search for particular those guides when deploying TP Solution.



Hi Pieter,

it depends on what list you want to sent to your firewall admins.

I think it's quite a good list, if you send them the VCS Outbund  and Inbound Ports, because there are all IP addresses listed, which are needed. So there is the Source IP & Destination and Port range specified.

You could also find the purpose of that ports, so you could tell your fw admins, why you need that port.

As Saurabh said, it's good to look at the Admin, Install and Deployment Guides to understand in more detail what the ports are for.

Regards, Paul


I agree with Pieter that the documentation could be optimized, some better and streamlined overview

in the admin guides of all components and a tp  firewall guide collecting all info would be a great help for many users.

Just as an example of his list,

MCU50000:54999VCS Control50000:54999H.323 / H.245TCP

that does not fit. The dst for the VCS is correct, the port range itself is for media and not h323/h245.

Media for the MCU could come from/to the codians ephemeral ports which are: 49152 to 65535 and its udp not tcp (see: )

It would also be needed to exist in the other direction from the VCS to the MCU.

As Paul mentioned working together with the firewall admin is always a good idea. Most firewalls have a capability to

show you what gets blocked, that can also help you here.

I can also recommend to review the mentioned documents or as this can become quite complex

to contact your Cisco partner or an external consultant to help you.

Please remember to rate helpful responses and identify

Hi Guys,

I am aware that every port is listed in some sort of documentation, but i thought there would be one document with the whole listing. I already started to compile a list for myself, But it's a lot of research, also dependant on versions.

@Martin, unfortunately I am the consultant people are turning to for firewall advice

Thanks for the replys!

Hi Pieter.

Most telepresence devices is mentioned in this link


Hi Marius,

Thank you for that link. It contains the sort of lists i am looking for. But it does not contain the former Tandberg portolio like VCS, MCU etc.

If sombody got those lists for VCS, MCU, TP Server, TMS, Endpoints than i am a happy man.

Hi Peter,

this is the base list, I use for installations.

SIP / H323 all internal Jabber Client Networks to VCS Control


UDP 5060

TCP 5060-5061


UDP 1718-1719

TCP 1720

TCP 15000-15499

Media Ports between Video endpoints, VCS Control and MCU (both directions)

RTP & RTCP UDP 50000 - 54999 (>= X7.2, before: 50000 - 52399)

// Comment: normally endpoints use 2326 to 2486, but I use the same port range on all device to ease firewall configuration

from TMS to Cisco Endpoints





from Cisco Endpoints tom TMS



SNMP Traps UDP 161

Great list, thanks for posting Paul. 

My customer will have the following separated by a firewall:

VCS-C / TMS / MCU / VC endpoints CUCM / TPS / TX endpoints

Given the above will the following apply?

5060 TCP UDP

VCS <> TelePresence Server
5060 TCP UDP
UDP 1718-1719
TCP 1720
Media Ports between Video endpoints and TelePresence Server (both directions)
RTP & RTCP UDP 50000 - 54999 (>= X7.2, before: 50000 - 52399)

Have I missed anything?

Many thanks


This is a good doc for all ports too.

I'm seeing an endpoint try to communicate with TMS from port 161 to port 2010. What is port 2010 used for?

Endpoints to VCS-C

UDP/1719 (H323 RAS signaling)
TCP/5060 (SIP signaling)
TCP/5061 (SIP TLS signaling)
TCP/1720 (Q931/H.225 call connect signaling) TCP/15000-19999 (H.245 signaling) UDP/50000-52399 (RTP/RTCP traversal media)

VCS-C to endpoints

UDP/1719 (H323 RAS signaling)
TCP/5060 (SIP signaling)
TCP/5061 (SIP TLS signaling)
TCP/1720 (Q931/H.225 call connect signaling) TCP/5555-6555 (H.245 signaling) UDP/2326-2487 (RTP/RTCP media endpoints) UDP/21000-21900 (RTP/RTCP media Movi/PC)

TCP/1720 (H323 signaling) *
TCP/5555-6555 (H.245 signaling) *
UDP/2326-2487 (RTP/RTCP media for H323)

UDP/46000-49000 (RTP/RTCP media for SIP)

UDP/21000-21900 (RTP/RTCP media Movi/PC)

Endpoints MUST have H323 ports set to

static (for using 5555-6555/tcp and

2326-2487/udp), not dynamic, then 11000-65000/udp is used for media).

Is port 1720 required?
