Figure 1 through Figure 1 are example diagrams of the various types of connectivity and protocols for the Metasys system. Not all protocols are used in all Metasys system configurations.

The configuration and network topology of the specific Metasys system installation must be considered when opening firewall ports for communication. For example, considering Figure 1 and Table 1, if the Metasys Server is not acting as a time server, then the SNTP protocol between callout 3 and callout 2 is not used. Similarly, if Metasys system alarms and events are not being monitored by IT tools, then the SNMP Trap protocol between callout 2 and callout 4, and item callout 3 and callout 4 is not used.

Note: Restrictions apply to the engines supported with an ADS-Lite Site Director. Refer to the Metasys System Configuration Guide (LIT-12011832) to discover which engines are supported for systems using the ADS-Lite as Site Director.
