We have three Load generators outside out network protected by firewall. Controller sits inside our network. I understand in such scenarios port 443 needs to open on firewall for communication between controller and generators.
Is it possible (perhaps with the loss of some functionality) to run with uni-directional access to port 443, enabled from the controller out to the generator, but not in the other direction? We have our own network limitations for not supporting bi-directional access.
In such uni-directional access, how can I collect the results and do runtime monitoring? Can I use one of my generators as analyser? The communication should happen something like this:
Use a "Sniffer" to verify your port assumptions by installing a local generator inside of your firewall. You will likely find that port 443 (ssl port) is different than the port that you actually need to have open for communications between the controller and the firewall.
Use a "sniffer"/protocol analyzer to verify the port combination and you shall have the direct answer that you need.
