By default, the following ports are used by the Symantec LiveUpdate Administrator. If other applications use these ports when you install LiveUpdate Administrator, you are prompted to enter alternate port numbers.
7070: Default Distribution Center Used by the Symantec LiveUpdate Administrator; LiveUpdate Administrator (if using HTTP).
7071: Used by Tomcat for shutdown commands While the Symantec LiveUpdate Administrator will work if this port is closed, Tomcat shutdown operations will not.
7072: Used by PostgreSQL database
7073: LiveUpdate Administrator (if using HTTPS)
The default protocol for Distribution Centers is HTTP. You can now configure the default Distribution Center to support either HTTP (7070) or HTTPS (7073), or the port that you configured when you installed LiveUpdate Administrator. The LiveUpdate Administrator URLs now use the HTTPS protocol instead of the HTTP protocol.
LiveUpdate Administrator communicates with the distribution centers using the destination TCP ports HTTP (80), HTTPS (443), and FTP (21). If the LiveUpdate clients run a firewall, verify that the firewall allows these destination ports.
To install LiveUpdate Administrator, you must log on as at least a power user with Administrator privileges. You must be able to create new local users and to create new services.
Problems may occur when you use a terminal service for installation. You should install LiveUpdate Administrator directly from the console.
