If the ports are blocked you can't


The Men & Mice Suite uses two services, in addition to the DNS/DHCP service itself.

The Men & Mice Central service listens on port 1231/TCP for inbound connections from the Management Console / CLI / Web-Interface / SOAP-Interface.
These Ports are officially registered by Men & Mice for the Men & Mice Suite modules (http://www.iana.org/assignments/port-numbers)

Of course, the DNS service itself listens on the standard port 53, both UDP and TCP.


The Men & Mice Management Console connects only to the Central service. The Central service connects to all the associated DNS/DHCP Server Controller services to the updater service.
