Security: What Ports and Protocols does Faster Suite Use?

Modified on Wed, 17 May 2023 at 03:32 PM

Faster Suite is a desktop application that uses certain ports and protocols when communicating with Clio.  Generally speaking, an IT administrator should not need to make adjustments to their firewall to allow Faster Suite to operate, however, this is a question we occasionally receive so we wanted to document this answer for all users.

Faster Suite Application

The Faster Suite application opens a local WebDAV server on the local machine on port 8881.  No firewall or other device should be enabled to allow external connections to this port.  This port is used strictly by Windows on the local machine to communicate with Faster Drive on the local machine.

Faster Law Licensing Server

The Faster Law licensing server is a Microsoft Azure hosted service.  The host name and IP address are subject to change and are not published, however, all communication takes place over standard HTTP(S) protocols.

Clio API Access

Faster Suite communicates with Clio's API through HTTPS.  The IP address is subject to change, however, the hostname is "" (for USA-based customers) and "" (for European-based customers).

Clio Document Storage

Faster Suite communicates with Clio's document storage through HTTPS.  Clio stores all documents inside Amazon AWS.  The IP address and host name are subject to change.
