  • To ensure proper functioning of the system and to support all of its features, the following ports are opened on the VidyoRoom side: 8090, 60777, and 63459. Please ensure that no firewall or other restriction is blocking these ports in your network. In addition, either port 80 or port 443 can be blocked, but they cannot both be blocked at the same time.

Some corporate networks may have firewall rules that cause the VidyoRoom or VidyoPanorama 600 systems to scan for all available routes. As a result, the VidyoRooms or VidyoPanorama 600s can take up to five minutes to log into the VidyoPortal after reboot. For such environments, you can disable the RIP Listener Service to allow the VidyoRoom or VidyoPanorama 600 to log into the VidyoPortal as soon as it is up after reboot.
