Ports and Protocols
For successful discovery, the probe should be able to ping the devices. To collect details about the devices, we use various protocols like WMI, SSH and SNMP
|WMI (Windows Platform)||135, 445 and 1024 or above||Local administrator or domain administrator role for WMI credentials|
|SSH (Mac,Linux)||22||SSH credentials|
|SNMP (network devices like printer, router, switch etc)||161||Read only|
Note: WMI is controlled by RPC and DCOM settings. RPC dynamic port allocation will use a random port above 1024. Opening all of the ports above 1024 is not feasible. However, you can restrict the access by adding entries manually in the registry. Refer to this Microsoft article for instructions.

Note: The Freshservice portal should be accessible from Probe Server or agent machines for the discovery tools to work.
