In general, most people don’t need to open any ports and can start live streaming right away.
However, if you are having trouble and believe you need a port open, 1935 should be the key. This is the default port for RTMP (Real Time Messaging Protocol) encoding. Our service is set up to try to use ports 80 or 443 if 1935 isn’t open, which is why most should be fine.
For more technical information about the ports, Dacast can use: TCP 1935, TCP 443 RTMP, or TCP 443 80.
