  4. Requirements


To enable full connectivity with the bloXroute Gateway, certain ports are required to be open on your machine. By default, these ports are:

Port Direction Description
TCP – 9001 Inbound and Outbound Used for communication between Gateways
TCP – 1609 Outbound Used for communication with block relays
TCP – 1610 Outbound Used for communication with transaction relays
HTTP – 8080 Outbound Used for communication with the SDN

Please note that if you have used the --external-port flag to configure a port different from the default, you should replace 9001 in the list above with the port that you have specified.

You can find specific information about the requirements of each type of installation (PIP or docker) in the respective installation pages linked in the section Gateway Installation
