Below is diagram to visually see the communications (protocol/port) of the NSX-v (6.2.x) components. The focus of the diagram is from an NSX-v viewpoint. Therefore, I haven’t included the comms for vSphere, and it’s relevant components.
The following communication isn’t covered in the diagram:
- Active Directory integration from NSX Manager for Identity-Based rules
- Netflow exports
- vSphere specific ports and communication
For a complete list of ports and protocols, please refer to official documentation. Which can be found at:
