EQuIS Online Connectivity Requirements

EQuIS Enterprise

To connect to EQuIS Enterprise, you must have port 443 open to the EQuIS Online URL for your site.

EQuIS Desktop Applications (EQuIS Professional, SPM, etc.)

To connect through EQuIS Professional, you must have port 1433 open to the Azure SQL Server (FQDN) on which your EQuIS Online database resides.

For firewalls that do not support opening ports to FQDNs, EarthSoft can provide a list of IP addresses for the Azure SQL Gateway that contains the Azure SQL Server hosting the EQuIS Online database.

Encryption

These TCP connections are secured by an sha256 2048 bit certificate and TLS 1.2 encryption.
