For the new wiki entry on network problems, I need to say something about firewalls. I reckon it should be enough to refer people to the FAQs.

But I notice that the relevant FAQ refers to ports 3493 and 9000 (Macintosh and Windows) and then suddenly mnetions 9090 in the bit about Third Party Firewalls.

So I am wondering what is correct, and I think the FAQ needs to be changed to be clearer (either remove the reference to 9090, or explain when it will be needed).

I believe 9090 is for the CLI (command line) interface, 9000 is for the web interface and 3493 is for - well something else - it escapes me right now.

Correct

3493 is for
IIRC, it's used during automatic discovery. IOW when the SB wakes up, it sends out hellos.

For some firewalls it matters whether the port should be opened for UDP or TCP. 9090 and 9000 need to be TCP. I think 3493 needs to be both UDP and TCP.

TCP 3483 - SB1/2/3 control (display, remote, stream control)
UDP 3483 - SB1/2/3 discovery, SLIMP3 everything (including audio)
TCP 9000 - SB1/2/3 audio, Web interface
TCP 9090 - CLI, used by some third-party stuff (Moose, Crestron/AMX automation)
