2.1. Network Ports

2.1.1. Online Licensing

Note that,

  • Licensing communicates with https://data.globalvisioninc.com using port 443

  • GVD uses Postgres to store all settings and audit logging, this uses TCP port 5432 as the default Postgres port.

Note: This port should NOT be exposed outside a firewall.

  • In the case of SSO connection with GVD, the ability to query the domain controller.

2.1.2. Offline Licensing

Note that,

  • GVD uses Postgres to store all settings and the audit logging, this uses TCP port 5432 as the default Postgres port.

Note: This port should NOT be exposed outside a firewall.

GlobalVision Software will install the following Windows Services:

  • PostgreSQL-x64-11 - PostgreSQL Server 11 (Postgres Database Server).

Note: Customer needs to relicense the application for Offline Licensing, in case the workstation changes. Customers would also need to relicense the application while running on a server environment(RDP), in case a backup is recovered.
