    Open Ports

    I know 10401 is for client Speakers but what is HomeSeer listening on port 10400 for? I have never seen any traffic on it.

    I haven't opened that port in my firewall so it would show up in the logs if anything tried to access 10400. I guess unless HomeSeer initiated the communication.

    Check you HS log file for ports it opens and needs. This port is for remote plugin connections.

      That explains it. I don't have any remote plug-ins yet.

          All builtin and free in most linux distributions. That's how I know HomeSeer is listening on the port.

          > netstat -npld

          or even better

          > ufw show listening

          Tells you what ports you have servers listening on and also lines them up with your firewall rules like this:

          tcp:
          22 * (sshd)
          [ 4] allow from 192.168.xxx.yyy to 192.168.xxx.yyy port 22 proto tcp
          [ 8] allow from 192.168.xxx.yyy to 192.168.xxx.yyy port 22 proto tcp

          udp:
          5353 * (avahi-daemon)
          [ 1] allow from 192.168.xxx.0/24 to 192.168.xxx.yyy port 5353 proto udp


          The source shall set you free.

            Configure one these :http://routerboard.com/CCR1009-8G-1S-1Splus D.O.S, VLANs and more if you are afraid of the intrernet. But if find that some stuff not working inside your network then you know you caused it. Server apps like HomeSeer including its plugins use multipal ports

              I already have two MicroTik Routerboards in my network. Each server resides behind their own router in case they do get owned. That way I can limit connections from the server outbound to other machines on my LAN while still allowing it outbound to the internet. I use these:

              ~$60 from Flytec and blows away any consumer grade router. RouterOS is not nearly as difficult as people make it out to be. Basically it's shorthand Linux.
