Hi,

The default replication server port is 8443

Which Communications Ports does Symantec Endpoint Protection use?

Hello,

Port 8014 will be open on both SEPMs, so if you did telnet on any server for port 8014, you will see that open.

Communication happen on one sepm but ports will be open on both, if the port is not open how will the client failover.

I would suggest you to check this Thread: 

https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/forums/failover-concept

NOTE: Failover and load balancing installations are supported only when the original Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager uses Microsoft SQL Server. The SQL Server Native Client files also must be installed on the computer on which you install a site for failover or load balancing.
