[Satellite6] Do we need to have port 5671 opened on firewall?

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • having port 5671 opened for qpidd communication
  • SSL vulnerability scanning warns about some old protocol / ciphers used on that port
  • all established connections to that port seem to be from localhost

Is the port 5671 required for client connections? Or for anything else?


  • Satellite 6.1 or higher
    • upgraded from Satellite 6.0 (not necessary condition)
