When a Redis cluster is running, each node has two TCP sockets open; the first is the standard Redis protocol for connecting clients, the default being port 6379 and the second port is calculated from the sum of the first port plus 10000 (16379 for the default port) that runs the Cluster's binary protocol for node-to-node communication.
