LoopCloud Supports the following protocols for Device Models:
Make sure to check that the required LoopCloud ports, listed in the table, are open or LoopCloud connectivity will not work properly.
|HTTP||Hypertext Transfer Protocol||80||This client-server protocol enables web data exchange between browsers and servers.|
|HTTPS||Hypertext Transfer Protocol - Secure||443||The secure version of the HTTP protocol encrypts all requests and responses with Transport Layer Security (TLS) or Secure Socket Layer (SSL).|
This OMA (Open Mobile Alliance) Lightweight Machine-to-Machine (LWM2M) protocol provides device management via client-server application layer communication. Litmus Automation provides the LWM2M server. LWM2M-compatible devices, like LoopEdge-enabled devices, are the clients.
|LWM2M with DTLS||Lightweight Machine-to-Machine - Secure||5684||The secure version of the LWM2M protocol uses Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS).|
|BS||Bootstrap||15683||Bootstrap is related to LWM2M. It allows the device to initialize configuration parameters from the bootstrap server when it first powers-on.|
|BS with DTLS||Bootstrap - Secure||15684||The secure version of Bootstrap uses Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS).|
|MQTT||Message Queuing Telemetry Transport||1883|
A lightweight messaging protocol for data transfer to/from IoT devices that is optimized to minimize network bandwidth consumption. MQTT is designed for event-driven interactions with objects that measure physical quantities such as light, gas, temperature, dust, motion, sound, and pressure.
|MQTT TLS/SSL||Message Queuing Telemetry Transport - Secure||8883||The secure version of the MQTT protocol uses Transport Layer Security (TLS)/Secure Socket Layer (SSL) to provide a secure connection.|
|Over-the-Air||Not Applicable||Over-the-Air updates facilitate device firmware updates. OTA refers to the methods for distributing software, configuration settings, and updating encryption keys.|
|Minio||9443||Open this port to enable offline deployments from the Minio storage system.|
|LoopInsights||9444||Main LoopInsights Port for communicating with user browsers. This port must be open to use LoopInsights unless you set up a custom domain with a difference port number.|
