This article is about the logical network ports used by the player. For physical Ethernet port interfaces on the player, please see the HMP page.

Introduction

In computer networking, a port is an endpoint of communication. Physical and wireless connections are terminated at ports of hardware devices. At the software level, within an operating system, a port is a logical construct that identifies a specific process or a type of network service. The software port is always associated with an IP address of a host and the protocol type of the communication.

Ports provide a multiplexing service for multiple services or multiple communication sessions at one network address. Specific port numbers are commonly reserved to identify specific services. The most commonly used protocols that use ports are the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and the User Datagram Protocol (UDP).

Ports used

The following logical network ports are used by the player. Some of these ports also apply to Elementi / HMD.

TCP 443 For access to HMP Control Center and RPC interfaces over HTTPS. Requires firmware 4.0.0 or later.
TCP 81 To publish content over WebDAV / HTTP.
TCP 9802 To publish content over WebDAV / HTTPS. Requires firmware 4.0.0 or later.
TCP 1234 For access to the SV Network API (not enabled by default).
UDP 123 For outbound access to a public NTP server.
