(Doc ID 2407599.1)

Last updated on JUNE 11, 2018

Applies to:

Linux OS - Version Oracle Linux 5.6 with Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel [2.6.32] and later
Linux x86
Linux x86-64


The goal of this document is to provide guidance on how to reserve a specific port range on Oracle Linux systems when these ports are needed for a third party application.

For example, one need a port range between "10000 to 15000" to be used by Application A and one need a port range between "20000 to 25000" to be used by Application B.

Those ports in between "10000 to 15000 " and " 20000 to 25000" are going to be exclusively for Application A and B.
