SuperADMIN and SuperSERVER present a very small TCP/IP "surface area" that also makes effective layer three firewalling simple to achieve.
SuperADMIN by default listens on TCP/IP ports:
- 9000 (Configuration Server)
- 9230 (CORBA IIOP)
- 9231 (Java RMI-JRMP protocol - services)
- 9234 (Java RMI-JRMP protocol - registry)
SuperSERVER by default listens on TCP/IP port:
- 9232 (CORBA IIOP protocol)
This makes it easy to configure stateful firewall rules to control ingress and egress for the network segment in which SuperADMIN and SuperSERVER are installed.
