Hi Ross,

The ports for Push Jobs (10000-100003) are covered here:

Thanks, appreciate that.

I found this doc, which helps:


But the postgresql, couched, etc ports may be 'internal' as you describe -- localhost only.

Did read somewhere that push jobs (if built and in use....) use high order ports, but can't find a good doc on this...

Only 443 is used for Chef, though the server listens on 80 by default as a convenience redirect. Everything is done via a REST API, so its all over a single port. More stuff is used internally, but those all only listen on localhost unless you are building a multi-server cluster for your Chef server.
