The following ports are required for Reveal communication.

Security exclusions

If security software is in use in the environment to monitor and block unknown host system processes, your security administrator must create exclusions to allow the Tanium processes to run without interference.

Endpoint computers

User role requirements

The Trace Live Connections Write permission is required for any user to make direct connections to endpoints to investigate rule matches.

Provide the Bypass Action Approval Advanced Role to the Trace Analysis Content Set so that Trace users can make Live Connections to endpoints without having to go through action approval and still require approval on all other actions.
