AVT GigE cameras: Which UDP ports?

On the camera, UDP ports are fixed and known. On the host, UDP ports are dynamically assigned.

Camera side:

UDP port 3956 is the GigE Vision Control Protocol (GVCP) port for camera commands and responses.

UDP port 10010 is the GigE Vision Stream Protocol (GVSP) port for camera image stream data.


UDP port 10020 is for camera events/callbacks.

Host side:

On the host side, there are dynamic port allocations. Windows/Linux/Mac OS/QNX use dynamic ports. The range of these dynamic ports varies dependent on the operating system. For example, Linux may use [32768 - 61000], WinXP [1025 - 5000], Win7 [49152 - 65535].


The port number on the host cannot be determined through the AVT GigE API.
