what is the running port for remote console?

9090, 8014, 8443

Port Number Port Type Initiated by Listening Process Description
80, 8014 TCP SEP Clients svchost.exe (IIS) Communication between the SEPM manager and SEP clients and Enforcers. (8014 in MR3 and later builds, 80 in older).
443 TCP SEP Clients svchost.exe (IIS) Optional secured HTTPS communication between a SEPM manager and SEP clients and Enforcers.
1433 TCP SEPM manager sqlservr.exe Communication between a SEPM manager and a Microsoft SQL Database Server if they reside on separate computers.
1812 UDP Enforcer w3wp.exe RADIUS communication between a SEPM manager and Enforcers for authenticating unique ID information with the Enforcer.
2638 TCP SEPM manager dbsrv9.exe Communication between the Embedded Database and the SEPM manager.
8014, 8443 TCP Remote Java or web console SemSvc.exe HTTPS communication between a remote management console and the SEPM manager. All login information and administrative communication takes place using this secure port.
9090 TCP Remote web console SemSvc.exe Initial HTTP communication between a remote management console and the SEPM manager (to display the login screen only).
8005 TCP SEPM manager SemSvc.exe The SEPM manager listens on the Tomcat default port.
39999 UDP Enforcer   Communication between the SEP Clients and the Enforcer. This is used to authenticate Clients by the Enforcer.
2967 TCP SEP Clients Smc.exe The Group Update Provider (GUP) proxy functionality of SEP client listens on this port.

The Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM) uses two web servers: Internet Information Services (IIS) and Tomcat. IIS uses port 80 (or 8014) and 443. Tomcat uses port(s) 9090 and 8443. The communication between IIS and Tomcat uses the HTTP protocol. IIS uses port 9090 to talk to Tomcat, Tomcat uses port 80 to talk to IIS.

Client-Server Communication:
For IIS SEP uses HTTP or HTTPS between the clients or Enforcers and the server. For the client server communication it uses port 80 (or 8014) and 443 by default. In addition, the Enforcers use RADIUS to communicate in real-time with the manager console for clients authentication. This is done on UDP port 1812.

Remote Console:
9090 is used by the remote console to download .jar files and display the help pages.
8443 is used by the remote console to communicate with SEPM and the Replication Partners to replicate data.

Web Console:
8443 is used by the web console to communicate with the SEPM.
8014 is used by the web console to communicate with SEPM Reporting component.

Client-Enforcer Authentication:
The clients communicate with the Enforcer using a proprietary communication protocol. This communication uses a challenge-response to authenticate the clients. The default port for this is UDP 39,999.
