Install and set up your environment to use Qalyptus Desktop with Qlik Sense Enterprise

If you want to use Qalyptus with Qlik Sense Server, you must make certain configurations to allow Qalyptus to connect to your Qlik Sense Server. The video below explains how to do it.

Open ports

Open Qlik Sense ports

Open Inbound Ports 4747 on the machine where the Qlik Sense Engine service is installed and ports 4242 and 4243, where the Qlik Sense Repository and Qlik Sense Proxy services are installed.

Open port on the cloud provider (if applicable)

If Qlik Sense is installed in a Virtual machine on a cloud provider (Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, etc.), and you use a public URL to access Qlik Sense, you must open the ports above in the Cloud provider firewall.


To check if the necessary ports are open, you can use one of the following solutions:

1- Open the CMD as an administrator with the user that runs Qalyptus and tape the following command line:

telnet [domain name or ip] [port]

Example: telnet 4242

If telnet is not recognized, you can easily enable it if your IT policy allows it. Otherwise, use the second method.

2- Open the PowerShell as an administrator with the user that runs Qalyptus and tape the following command line:

Test-NetConnection -ComputerName "" -Port 4242-InformationLevel "Detailed"

Example: Test-NetConnection -ComputerName "" -Port 4242 -InformationLevel "Detailed"
