Ports used by inSync mobile app
To ensure even greater security and firewall management, inSync now directs all communication traffic through a single port (SSL/443) for Backup, Restore, Sync, and Share. This reduces the number of required firewall ports for deployment.
You can also continue to use port 80, if you prefer to use your earlier port configuration. If you are using port 6061 to send requests to inSync Server, then inSync mobile app communicates with inSync storage node via port 6071.
