NOTES:
  • Server Backup Manager communicates with Agent using port 1167 by default. This port is also used for recovering the full server, so the usage of this port is not advisable!!
  • If the external network IP addresses are installed to the server, it is advisable to use port, for example 1168, which should be opened in the server’s firewall.
  • If the servers’ infrastructure is located behind a firewall, it is necessary to open a port for each server, for example: 1168, 1169, etc.
