Common TCP/UDP Ports Used By Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL/centOS)

Red Hat Enterprise Linux depends on access to many TCP and UDP ports to function. RHEL also includes numerous software programs that require access to these communication ports.

Below, you’ll find comprehensive lists of the most common TCP and UDP ports used in RHEL. For an up-to-date complete list of TCP and UDP ports registered with the IANA, please see the official IANA site. Keep in mind though, that the IANA list only includes registered ports. Any software you are working with could require one or more unregistered ports. Neither the ports nor any documentation on their uses will be found on the IANA registry.
