Network Requirements

Fatigue Manager is the predecessor of Life Hub. For information on SmartCap LifeHub, please go to SmartCap Lifehub.

This article captures the network requirements to run a locally hosted instance of SmartCap Fatigue Manager. 

Protocol and Routing

The protocol used for communication between Fatigue Manager and SmartCap system is UDP. The SmartCap system initiates the connection and expects a response from the Fatigue Manager.

The SmartCap system sends data to a pre-configured IP address (that of the Fatigue Manager) on port 10001. The Fatigue Manager responds to the IP address where it received the packet from.

The routing on the network needs to be such that the IP address tagged along with the packets received at the Fatigue Manager is unique to the SmartCap system where it came from. Return packets to that IP address must route through to the SmartCap system.



SmartCap System and Fatigue Manager both communicate SmartCap data over port 10001 (up and down).

Port 9999 is required to be available on the SmartCap system for configuration of the Base Unit using telnet.

Firewall on server: port 25, 80, 3389 and 10001 need to be opened.

25: Access to a SMTP server is required for periodic email reports (TCP).

80: Fatigue Manager web-interface (TCP)

3389: Remote access to the server is required for support, configuration and updates (RDP).

10001: SmartCap data (UDP)

Firewall on truck: port 9999 and 10001 need to be opened.

9999: telnet SmartCap System configuration (TCP)

10001: SmartCap data (UDP)
