Sync problems behind firewall (Apple Server)


I use DT on a Apple Server (mini). Which ports do I have to open?


DT lets the system pick an open port for it to use, in order to minimize conflicts with other apps and services. However, in one of the most recent updates, I changed the behavior to re-use the last port when possible to work better with firewalls. :slight_smile:

Probably the easiest way to find what port is being used by DT is to use Bonjour Browser. When you open it, you’ll get a list of Bonjour services currently running on your computer, so you’ll have to run it on the Mini. Find an entry named “_devonthink._tcp.” and click the disclosure triangle on the computer name underneath. That will show you the IP address and the port number.
