The Full Miner communicates over a peer-to-peer (P2P) network and needs to connect to the remote port 44158.
The Light Hotspot → Validator connection is a standard gRPC connection. The default port Validators listen on is 8080 so Hotspots should be able to connect Outbound to that port.
Hence, other miners must have this port forwarded to their miner IP address, and so should you. Indeed, other miners will want to connect to your miner too.
More info on port forwarding can be found on Helium documentation:
Firmware and miner updates are managed by KERLINK.
Kerlink is a member of LoRa Alliance and the Kerlink hotspot is compatible with LoRaWAN protocol. If you need information about LoRaWAN network protocol please contact the LoRa Alliance and request LoRaWAN specification : https://lora-alliance.org/lorawan-for-developers
