Octopus behind firewall

Will the tentacles ever attempt to connect to the octopus, or is it only the octopus connecting to the tentacles?

Since my octopus probably will go behind a firewall, I can’t have tentacles trying to connect. (I have this issue with team city build agents which attempts to register with the server. This is a no-go for our IT-people :))

Hi, thanks for the question,

Tentacles listen on a TCP port (10933). They will never try to make an outbound connection to any server, including the Octopus server. Tentacles don’t have any “registration” feature the way TeamCity does.

Hope that helps,
