> **IMPORTANT NOTE:** Aspera requires UDP ports to be enabled on firewalls.
Specifically your firewall should:
* Allow outbound connections from the Aspera client on the TCP port (TCP/33001, by default, when connecting to a Windows server, or on another non-default port for other server operating systems).
* Allow outbound connections from the Aspera client on the fasp UDP port (33001, by default).
* If you have a local firewall on your server (like Windows Firewall), verify that it is not blocking your SSH and fasp transfer ports (e.g. TCP/UDP 33001).
Detailed information on how to configure firewalls when working with Aspera is given [here](https://download.asperasoft.com/download/docs/p2p/3.5.1/p2p_admin_win/webhelp/dita/configuring_the_firewall.html).
