Configuring firewalls and ports requires configuring them for Edge Servers, reverse proxy servers, and possibly hardware load balancers (for a scaled deployment that doesn’t use DNS load balancing). This section provides information about firewall and port requirements for all edge components and the configuration of firewall ports for Edge Servers. For details about configuring ports for reverse proxy servers, see Setting Up Reverse Proxy Servers. If you are deploying a scaled edge topology and using hardware load balancing instead of DNS load balancing, see Reference Architecture 2: Scaled Consolidated Edge (DNS Load Balanced) for details about configuring ports for load balancers.
