Well-known ports for apps and accessories¶
Some apps or accessories need to open up ports, such as:
- externally, e.g. for communications with the users’ rich clients
- internally, e.g. so two daemons can communicate.
A further distinction is whether there needs to be:
- one port per AppConfiguration (i.e. when the app is installed more than once on the same device, each of them needs to have a separate port)
- one port shared by all AppConfigurations of the same app on the same device. This is uncommon, but happens if all of them can talk to the same instance of a daemon like memcached without conflicts.
To allocate AppConfiguration-specific ports¶
To allocate a single port used by all AppConfigurations of an app¶
Please get in touch to have your port placed on this list. The following port numbers are well-known so far:
|Port||Protocol||Name of app or accessory||Description|
|6001||tcp||decko||decko-memcached.service listens at this port for all Decko instances on this device|
