This file specifies the TCP port numbers that are used by the Symantec ESM network daemons. Do not change the port numbers in this file unless they are already used on your system by another application. The following are the default settings:
The ESM_PORT_MANAGER port number controls the port number that is used by the manager when listening for incoming connections from agents and user interfaces. It is also used by agents and user interfaces when making connections to a manager. This number must be the same on all systems running Symantec ESM, whether managers, agents, or user interfaces.
The ESM_PORT_AGENT_* port numbers control the port number that is used by agents when listening for incoming connections from manager and user interfaces. The manager stores this number on a per-agent basis in the agent control information file and looks it up whenever it needs to contact an agent. This number can be different for each agent. However, use the same number for all agents running on the same operating system.
