TrueNAS provides a range of different storage services and uses TCP/IP for both data and management. All protocols can be securely encrypted and routed using VPN technologies. This approach is encouraged when using services directly over the Internet or WAN.

Inbound Ports

TCP ports and services that listen for external connections:

Outbound Ports

Protocols that are “outbound” do not listen for or accept external connections. These protocols and ports are not a security risk and are usually allowed through firewalls. These protocols are considered “primary” and might need to be permitted through a firewall:
