Ports required for Azure DevOps Server

Azure DevOps Server 2019 | TFS 2018 | TFS 2017 | TFS 2015 | TFS 2013

Note: Azure DevOps Server was previously named Visual Studio Team Foundation Server.

Your firewall controls network ports, but Azure DevOps Server requires port access. You must ensure that your firewall does not block Azure DevOps Server from the ports it requires.

Firewalls

If you are using Windows Firewall and it is configured to allow exceptions, the installation wizard for Azure DevOps Server opens the ports that Azure DevOps Server requires. If Windows Firewall is configured not to allow exceptions, you should configure it to allow exceptions during the installation of Azure DevOps Server. Otherwise, you'll have to manually open the ports that Azure DevOps Server requires. For more information, see How to configure Windows Firewall on a single computer.

If you are using some other firewall product, you should check its documentation to determine how to open the ports that Azure DevOps Server requires.

Required ports for SQL Server

The following table specifies the TCP ports that SQL Server requires.

Server or Application Context TCP Port
SQL Service (Database Engine) 1433¹
SQL Browser Service (Database Engine) 1434
SQL Server Analysis Services Redirector 2382
SQL Server Analysis Services 2383
SQL Server Reporting Services 80

¹ SQL Server uses port 1433 for the default instance. For named instances, SQL Server uses a dynamic port that the operating system assigns. Use SQL Server Configuration Manger to determine the SQL Server port number for any named instances. For more information, see this page on the Microsoft website: Configuring the Windows Firewall to allow SQL Server access.

Report Server port requirements

You must ensure that the report server contains an exception in Windows Firewall for Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) if the report server is not on the server that is running Azure DevOps Server. The instructions for completing this task differ based on the operating system that you are using. If you are using Windows Server 2003 or Windows Server 2003 R2, see Connecting through Windows Firewall. If you are using Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Vista, or Windows 7, see Connecting to WMI remotely starting with Windows Vista.

Required ports for SharePoint Products

The table in this section specifies the TCP ports that SharePoint Foundation uses if it is installed by the installation wizard for Azure DevOps Server.

These port numbers might be different for existing deployments of SharePoint Products. You can determine which port numbers SharePoint Products uses by opening Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager and looking at the properties of the websites. For more information, see Verify SharePoint Products for Azure DevOps Server.
