What are the networking requirements for using Rancher Hosted Prime?

This document (000020024) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


The network requirements for Rancher Hosted Prime are going to depend on your use cases. The following is a list of common uses cases and what is required:
  • To access the Rancher UI or API, you must have outbound TCP/443 connectivity to Rancher Hosted Prime.
  • All downstream/managed clusters require outbound TCP/443 connectivity to Rancher Hosted Prime.
  • If you are creating a node driver based cluster, Rancher Hosted Prime will need TCP/22 (SSH) connectivity to each node for the initial provisioning. Additionally, Rancher Hosted Prime will need connectivity to the orchestration API, for example, the vSphere API.
  • For authentication provider integration, Rancher Hosted Prime will require connectivity to the authentication provider's endpoint. Generally, no networking setup is needed if using a SaaS authentication provider such as Azure Active Directory, Okta, or GitHub.

More detailed documentation for networking requirements can be found in Rancher's port requirements docs.
