Port Requirement

It seems that when we start install and run the different kinds of beats, they will go smooth naturally. So is there any actual port opening requirement for beats?

Depends on output. Beats do not open any ports.

I am outputing to elasticsearch which is installed in another server. So no ports needed for that?

Your Beats obviously need to be able to open connections towards the ES server's HTTP interface, which typically runs on port 9200.

Yup but like the comunication port between beats and elasticsearch is flexible?

I'm not sure what you mean. ES's listening port is configurable so in that sense it's flexible.
