If any of the above ports are restricted using a firewall or any other mechanism, IBM i Access or related functions may fail to operate. For assistance with configuring ports or working with a firewall beyond the above information, contact the firewall provider or obtain a consulting agreement.
Note:
The following ports are common to most IBM i Access Client products such as ODBC, Telnet and other specific functions:
Port 449 is used to look up service by name and return the port number.
Ports 8470 and 9470(TLS/SSL) are used for host code page translation tables and licensing functions.
Ports 8475 and 9475(TLS/SSL) are used to check for application administration restrictions.
Ports 8476 and 9476(TLS/SSL) are used for checking signon verification to authenticate.
depending on your needs you may only need the above ports and the port(s) for your function/application.

For the ports used by the Console, see document N1015344, IBM iSeries Port Assignments with Operations Console.
