After downloading and installing Laserfiche Forms 11 Update 3, we attempted to get the new Auditing service setup within Forms/Audit Trail. However, Forms failed to connect to the Audit Trail service:
After investigating further, I found that Forms was trying to connect to Audit Trail over TCP Port 10256 (which was not open between the system hosting Forms and the system hosting Audit Trail in our environment).
I found this to be an odd port number, in comparison to Laserfiche service ports historically (which are generally in the 5000s or 8000s). However, I did confirm that Audit Trail was listening on this port:
Digging a little further, I found that Audit Trail includes a new service -- Laserfiche Audit Trail Event Hub:
This is the Service that is listening on the new port (TCP Port 10256). I further confirmed this by finding/referencing a configuration file for this service:
This file shows the static setting for that listening port:
However, thus far, I don't see this information published in any documentation, so I decided to come here for more insight.
I see this new service listening on both of the following ports:
- TCP Port 5085
- TCP Port 10256
Though, I confirmed that Laserfiche Forms is only trying to connect via TCP Port 10256.
- Can I get a brief explanation of these 2 ports, and what each port is used for?
- Will these ports be published in the "Default Network Ports" documentation?
Thanks in advance!
