  • Global File Cache (GFC)
  • Edge

Answer

The edges need to have ports opened for GFC communication (Core, LMS) Other than that they don't need to reach Internet to function. See the network requirements below

* Firewall: TCP ports should be allowed between GFC edge and core instance.
* GFC TCP Ports: 443 (HTTPS - LMS), 6618 - 6630, 6688.
* Network optimization devices (i.e., Riverbed Steelhead) must be configured to "Pass-thru" GFC-specific ports (TCP 6618-6630), 6688.
