Take Control

Take Control Port Access requirements

The ports identified in the tables below must be accessible for Take Control remote control connections.

If the agent has a direct TCP port configured, the same port must be open at the agent's firewall and be accessible by the viewer.

When using Take Control, the SolarWinds N-central server must be able to resolve the following domain names:

  • *.mspa.n-able.com
  • sis.n-able.com

UDP Mode (Optional)

Take Control can use the UDP transmission model to connect to devices in addition to TCP.

Initially, the Take Control viewer requires access to port 1234. After the system administrator modifies the firewall to enable the identified IP addresses to communicate with the server, the ports can be random.
