WeatherLink Live ports

The WLL uses the following ports:

PortProtocolScopePurpose
68UDP (DNS)OutboundDHCP to automatically assign an IP address of not using a static IP address
53UDP (DNS)OutboundDNS lookups to get the IP address of the Davis servers. We use the DNS servers provided by DHCP and fall back to 8.8.8.8 if those are unavailable.
5621TCPOutboundData connection to upload data to Davis servers.
80TCP (HTTP)LocalLocal API for current conditions, for use by the app and third party software in LIVE mode.
22222UDPLocalLocal API broadcast for real-time conditions, for use by the app and third party software in LIVE mode.
5353Multicast UDPLocalmDNS local device discovery, for use by the app for LIVE mode.

The WLL DOES NOT require any inbound ports to be whitelisted in the firewall. To connect to Davis servers, it only needs the ability to make outbound connections on port 5621 and to make DNS queries on port 53.
