SmartSense Gateway Placement

You must deploy the SmartSense Gateway on a host in a network zone that has both outbound internet access and inbound access from all HST server instances. The connectivity between the HST server and the gateway is secured using mutually authenticated SSL.

By default, TCP port 9450 is used to register HST server instances with the gateway. After initial registration, TCP port 9451 is used for the authenticated API communication between the HST server and the gateway. Both the registration and API communication ports are configurable in the gateway hst-gateway.ini file.

Outbound connections from the SmartSense Gateway to the external Hortonworks SmartSense analysis environment use HTTPS to transmit bundles to Hortonworks. Specific connectivity details for the SmartSense environment are outlined in SmartSense Ports & Traffic Flow.
