4.1 Prerequisites for Using the Web Interface

Ensure that your network environment meets the requirements in this section for accessing and using the PlateSpin Transformation Manager Web Interface.

4.1.1 Port Requirements

During the PlateSpin Transformation Manager Appliance installation, Transformation Manager automatically configures the default ports shown inn Table 4-1 on the PTM Appliance. Ensure that you open the ports in any firewalls in your network between the PlateSpin Server and the computers you use to access the Web Interface.

NOTE:For remote communications, Micro Focus recommends that you use the secure port and SSL options for accessing the Web Interface.
