As D-Tools adds new features on each new release, and as we expand the usage of cloud infrastructures, the way that each part of software communicates with each other changes – for the better! This is often not a concern to the end-user, but more related to an IT level within each organization. Still, it is always good to know all the components of SI2016, and which ports each one uses.

D-Tools SI 2016 is composed of 10 separate elements:

  • D-Tools Mobile Install: A web-app designed for Installers. It runs on any device that is capable of accessing the web.
    • Initial request on port 80, and switches to 443.
