UniFi Protect - Ports Used


This article lists the ports used for the UniFi Protect line, for both insecure (http), and secure (https) connections. In most cases, it should not be necessary to forward any ports to the UniFi Protect installation. Utilizing https://protect.ui.com is the preferred method to access UniFi Protect when remote.

NOTES & REQUIREMENTS:All streaming connections will utilize webRTC to facilitate streaming. In most situations, only port 7443 will need to be forwarded to UniFi Protect to facilitate direct, secure access.
