Port Forwarding

What are these ports used for?

NOTE: Opening ports 80 and 443 is highly recommended as some corporate firewalls may block non-standard ports. This will cause issues for some customers attempting to purchase tickets from their workplace networks.

Port 80 - This is the port the RTS Web-server "listens" on for unencrypted hypertext, otherwise referred to as HTTP traffic.

  • This is the standard webserver port most websites are hosted on.

Port 443 - This is the port the RTS Web-server "listens" on for encrypted hypertext, otherwise referred to as HTTPS SSL/TLS traffic.

  • This is the standard SSL port that most secure websites are hosted on.

Port 2235 - This a non-standard port and is used exclusively by the RTS Web-server. It operates in much the same way as port 80.

  • This port is required for RTS licensing, Software Upgrade and Maintenance services.

Port 2237 This port is no longer required to be forwarded and should be removed from your forwarding rules.

The importance of Port Forwarding for the following Departments:

  • Digital Signage
  • Development
  • Licensing
  • Tech Support

Digital Signage: Having port forwarding in place allows for sign changes and updates without having access to your server.

Development: Having port forwarding in place allows for updates without having access to your server.

Licensing: Having port forwarding in place allows for licensing changes and updates without having access to your server.

Tech Support: Having port forwarding in place allows for changes, fixes, and updates to be implemented without having access to your server.

Without accessing your server, you will not experience an interruption in your ticketing or concession sales.
