Ports to be opened in the Firewall

If you have a firewall active - either in the systems/assets that are being scanned or in the system where the Security Manager Plus server is installed - you will need to open up certain ports in the firewall on these systems, so that Security Manager Plus can go about its scanning and patching tasks effectively. Here is a list of such ports, in both the agentless as well as the agent modes of management.
