In addition to the standard ports required for a basic SoftNAS Cloud® Enterprise configuration (namely SSH and HTTPS - see TCP/UDP ports required for accessing SoftNAS volumes for more details), Lift and Shift™ requires the following ports to be configured: 

Note: 8081 and 9443 must be configured on both target and source node.

PortTraffic Type
8081Data transfer port for FlexFiles™/Lift and Shift™. The target node requires an 8081 port configured with a source node IP address configured with 32 ports (For example: 54.214.15.155/32).
9443Web UI port for viewing FlexFiles. This port requires a 9443 port to be configured with a source node IP address of the instance running the browser used to view StorageCenter™, also configured with 32 ports. (For example: 54.214.15.125/32)
8443For viewing FlexFiles Architecture. This port requires the IP address for the device running the browser used to view Storage Center (i.e. 192.154.13.12/32).


Note: For AWS instances and Azure virtual machines in particular, it is recommended that your SoftNAS Cloud® instances be configured with static IP addresses. If not, each time the nodes are stopped and restarted, there is a strong chance that the IP address will change, which will cause your Lift and Shift configuration to fail. On-premise (VMware) instances are less likely to lose assigned IP addresses, even if dynamically assigned, but it is still a risk.
