Controller Based WLANs

What ports needed to be allowed for Facetime to work ?

This article applies to Aruba Mobility Controllers running ArubaOS version 6.1.0.0 and above.

 

Observations indicate that corporate firewalls should allow TCP/UDP ports 53, 443, 3478-3497 (the usage of these is unclear) and 5223, as above: These ports are used for communication with Apple’s FaceTime servers. The UDP ports 16384-16387 and 16393-16402 are for the signaling and media streams used by FaceTime
