Your Firewall

The Ghostvolt service typically runs on the computer where your file repository is held. The service acts as a gateway and controls access to your protected files and data. Your Ghostvolt client software communicates to the service over your network via TCP.

To ensure that your firewall doesn’t block GhostVolt, please ensure the following port is open on both the server and each computer that uses GhostVolt:

Service name TCP
GhostVoltService 9069

Your firewall will have been automatically setup during the installation process.
