How to Configure Firewall for Secure Networks?



The Wisenet SKY Eye VMS and its bridge hardware is specifically designed to be highly secure
and only uses outbound TCP and UDP connections to talk to the cloud.  If you restrict
outbound connections on your local firewall, here is the IPv4 and port information
you will need.


Outbound Ports for the Wisenet SKY Eye Bridge

The following TCP and UDP ports are used by the Wisenet SKY Eye Bridge.  All connections are outbound-only, meaning that the bridge connects outbound and never accepts inbound connections (so you do NOT need to set up e.g. NAT rules as a general rule).

80/tcp        # Used to discover video termination endpoints in the cloud

443/tcp    # Used to transfer video to the cloud  (TLS 1.2+)

773/tcp    # Used to transfer video to the cloud (TLS 1.2+)

8081/tcp    # Used to transfer video to the cloud

8082/udp    # Used to transfer video metadata to the cloud

50000-60000/tcp    # Used occasionally to provide remote troubleshooting and maintenance (Secured via SSL)

Wisenet SKY Eye Bridge and the Internet, and multicast must be enabled so the
bridge can detect cameras (if the bridge and cameras are on the same subnet, generally
this isn’t a problem).  UPNP is NOT required (the bridge won’t use it if enabled).

this article on WS-Discovery.  Web Service Discovery is an OASIS industry standard
and generally works without much effort on most internal networks.  
You should not need to adjust your firewall to get it to work unless there is
additional firewalling between your bridge and cameras

Outbound IPs for the Wisenet SKY Eye Bridge

Should you need to restrict the Wisenet SKY Eye Bridge to a specific set of IP addresses, the following is the list of Wisenet SKY Eye IP addresses you should allow in CIDR format:


Wisenet SKY Eye Cloud VMS 


Outbound Ports for the Wisenet SKY Eye Web and Mobile Applications

Independent of the bridge, the Wisenet SKY Eye Web and Mobile Applications for PCs, tablets, and phones also need to connect to the cloud to retrieve video, set settings, and so on.  The ports required for this are: 

tcp/80            # HTTP->SSL Redirect Only

tcp/443        # Web user interface

tcp/50000-60000    # Secure video transfer

The IPs are generally the same as for the bridge.
