XP PA host agent connectivity

Hello!
We have new installation of XP24K and i want to add this system to Perfomance Adviser. I've installed host agent on HP-UX. I've presented command device from XP to that HP-UX. And now I must write a letter to our NOC and security team.
They want to know which ports should be open on xp pa host agent and xp pa management station.
I can not find such information in manuals. Please provide me.
Thanks.

Re: XP PA host agent connectivity

there are no network requirements in this document.
Also troubleshooting guide recomends ping host agent and check connectivity. But I should describe network ports requirements to our NOC before.

As far I know you dont have to bother about your port settings,it will work on default http port 80..

by default firewall is set to block any network communication. I should open several ports before start host agent.

noc permitted communication between host agent and management appliance port 80.
That's enough for perfomance adviser.
