Network ports

Posit recommends reviewing the consolidated list of ports used by the professional products available on the Networking page.


After verifying the software, it’s important to do functional testing to guarantee that the installation meets the needs of the users. Tailor the functional testing steps to your use case, but could include at a minimum the following:

  • Open and publish content that reflects your organization’s workflows:
    • Examples of default content types:
  • Things to watch out for:
    • Certificate verification failure.
    • Systems are using binaries from the correct package source, e.g., Package Manager.
    • That the content displays correctly, this checks websocket connectivity.
