SAS environment setup:
#SAS Application server
#Mid-tier server (midtier and web-server)
We are accessing the SAS in a thin client with the URL: http://<webServer-HostName>:7980/SASVisualAnalyticsHub
1. In order to allow access to pan-India users, which ports i need to open from their local/client ip location?
2. or should I open only port 7980 of web-server?
all our users are internal users accessing SAS from LAN.

Hello @rrro, Rohan,
the question, while I can kind of understand it, I cannot follow completely the original requirement.
On a simple way: open the port/connection is the first thing to do. But if your users can already connect to the VA server, but they cannot login or they cannot see the right reports, that is a SAS metadata requirement. You might need to register the new users or provide the right permissions to the right group/s.
But let me do a try. I might give you too much information, but I will aim to cover the global scenario:
On my understanding, and please correct me where I might be wrong, is that you have a VA server on a network A/Domain A for your current site (A), your users can connect from site A to the VA server sitting on network A. But your other users (pan-India) are on another network/domain B, and they cannot access on the same URL.

You have said all users are local users.
From this I presume that you want your local users to be able to connect when the user is working rremotely (for example Work from home).
In corporate environments users connect to their work location using vpn or other secure methods.
Once they are connected this way to the work environment it is as good as working from office.
It should not matter from where in India you are connecting.
Normally the local LAN i/ps are not accessible from outside. The other reply has the details how to handle the situations.
