When you install vCloud Connector, consider these requirements.

For each cloud that you add to vCloud Connector, the vCloud Connector server must be able to reach the following.

The vCloud Connector node associated with the cloud

The cloud

The vCloud Connector server accesses the cloud directly to get its inventory and for tasks such as powering on or powering off virtual machines or vApps. It accesses the cloud through the public API.

If there is a load balancer between a vCloud Connector node and the cloud with which it is associated, the load balancer should have session persistence enabled.

For the list of ports vCloud Connector uses, see System Requirements.
