The communication port from Agent to SSIM is 443 (Agent -> SSIM). The communication from SSIM to Agent is 5998 (SSIM -> Agent)
The SSIM sends a CIMON Packet via 5998 telling the Agent that there is a new configuration file ready, the Agent then communicates to the SSIM and colects the Config file.
The solution that we are working on will not allow the outbound communication (initiation) from the SSIM Server.
Does anyone have any knowledge or experience of the implications/work around of not opening port 5998 ?
