Network Connectivity: How to Check If Ports Are Open

When setting up a SAFEQ environment with any product, you may need to check network connectivity from one endpoint to another.

Applies to the below list of products and versions:
YSoft SAFEQ Cloud

Network connectivity and open ports are the foundation of a stable and functional SAFEQ environment. They enable efficient communication between components, ensure secure data transmission, and play a vital role in maintaining a positive user experience. Administrators and IT teams must prioritize these aspects during the setup and ongoing maintenance of the SAFEQ system to guarantee its reliability and effectiveness.

When configuring the SAFEQ environment with any product, it's important to verify network connectivity between different endpoints.

For example: 

  • MFD subnet > Server or Server > MFD subnet 
  • End user PC with Client > Server
  • Server > Server

To see a list of required ports for our products see these articles from the documentation: 


We suggest utilizing one of the following methods.

Option 1 - PowerShell Test Network Connection function

  1. Open PowerShell as an administrator
  2. Run a command with the structure tnc <IPaddress or Hostname> -port <port number>
