New Network port diagram for vSphere 5.x

Over the past few weeks we have been working on constructing a brand new network diagram, depicting ports in use for vSphere 5.x

These diagrams have been very popular in the past and we hope you like this one too! We created Knowledgebase article: Network port diagram for vSphere 5.x (2054806) as a container for the pdf diagram. The pdf also lists all of the ports used in tabular format.

If you’d like to see more of these, tell us in the comments section below!

  1. Yes, link is broken for me too. Spawns a new browser window, then seems to download. But displays nothing.

  2. Thanks for posting. I can’t seem to get it to display right in IE, Opera, or FF. Nor when I email it via outlook and print a hardcopy there. I wish I knew more about image sizing, because my options are consistently too small to see details, OR big and too blurry to tell much. Ctrl + just blurs it too (tried multiple browsers).

    Having said that, it looks like a great diagram, and one that I could really use. Thanks for going to the effort to make and post it. I guess in the meantime I can try to import the image into a photo editor that might automatically fix resizing. Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks!

    1. We just updated it so perhaps you got caught in that process. Please try downloading from the KB 2054806 again.

  3. Thanks Rick, the commuinities link works great. WOW what a great doc! I may try to get this blown up poster size. Thanks for doing this; it must have taken quite a while to put together.

  4. Any chance we could get an editable version of this, so we can simply remove unused components, and relabel things instead of starting from scratch for internal documentation?

  5. Missing entry: details TCP 8084: “The vCenter Update Manager Client plug-in connects to the vCenter Update Manager SOAP server listening on port 8084. It connects to the vCenter Update Manager Web server on HTTP (SSL) port 9087 for uploading the host upgrade files.”

    Also, the KB article lists 5.0.x and 5.1.x, will it finally be updated for 5.5.x? (This is how I discovered the above missing entry)

    I’ll repeat my request for an editable version as well, to make our jobs documenting it easier 😀
