What network ports does Windward use?

Answer

Windward uses port 1707, which is assigned to Windward Studios by the Internet Assigned Names Authority (IANA). This is used for internal purposes (this cannot be changed). Please note that AutoTag also uses this port for internal purposes.

This port is used for the AutoTags and engines at your company to talk to other AutoTags and engines at your company. They do not talk to our servers or to any system outside of your company. They do a UDP broadcast and TCP reply to verify that the software is not running on more computers than it is licensed for.

Our license requires that you keep this port open on your sub-net. It does not need to be open outside of that. This port can be closed for your corporate firewall.
