Hello, we are running Juniper MAG Pulse VPN. We are finding that TCP 8010 is being blocked somehow. We cannot establish connections to any machine on port 8010. We have nothing in our firewalls preventing this port. We are not inadvertently using this port elsewhere. As soon as we connect to our network bypassing Pulse VPN, port 8010 starts to work, therefore it points to the VPN causing this blockage. Does anyone know of any issues with this port ?
The TCP ports 8009-8010 are used for Session Data for Clustering [Applicable to 8.2+ and above] (https://kb.pulsesecure.net/articles/Pulse_Secure_Article/KB24280) but this would only be between the internal interface IP addresses of the cluster nodes so should not block any communication on those ports to other IP addresses. Using tcpdump do you see the packets arriving on the external interface and leaving the internal interface and do the packets show up on the next hop router? On the PCS you can use the following filter to only capture the relevant traffic:
