This article provides information about identifying ports used by the Code42 CrashPlan app. You may need port information when adding CrashPlan as an approved application in your antivirus or security software.
The recommended solution below requires version 5.2.x or later of the CrashPlan app.
To display the ports used by the CrashPlan app:

CrashPlan responds with the internal IP address and port information. For example:
connection.info Address=127.0.0.1 Port=4242 UI Port=4243 HTTP Port=4244
The HTTP port is used for communication of the Code42 service and the CrashPlan app. The port and UI port are reserved, but not used, in version 5.x and later of the CrashPlan app.
