The CAPWAP tunnels from the access points to the HiveManager use UDP port 12222 by default and HTTP port 80 as a failover.

To see which port your access point is using SSH into the access point and execute the command show capwap client. The "CAPWAP transport mode" field shows the protocol (UDP or HTTP) and the "Server Destination Port" field shows the port number.

The nice thing about CAPWAP is that it's standards based. :) Check out the RFC (5414 I believe), in a pinch.
