Windows Admin Center "Files" Network Port Requirements

Brass Contributor

Good morning,


I'm working on a WAC gateway server deployment and I have a question regarding the WAC "Files" transfer process.

For "File" Tool, or really any of the tools, I need to document which protocols/ports are used between the UI, WAC Gateway Server and managed node.

With the File tool, I confirmed the system with the browser needs SMB access to the network location the files are being copied to/from.  The files then appear to use HTTPS from the UI to the Gateway using HTTPS.   What protocol is used to transfer the files from the GW to the managed endpoint, WSMAN?  

I see SMB traffic in the capture but I was wondering if WINRM is used (PowerShell Copy-Item) from GW to Endpoint?  I understand SMB is required for other Tools like Cert management.

Thank you.
