Setting NAT/Firewall Configuration for Vembu BDR servers.


Vembu BDR uses the following ports and it should be configured on the Vembu BDR backup server to receive the backup/restore/delete/web-service requests from the clients:

TCP Port 32004 – for processing Backup/Restore/Delete/Replication requests.

TCP Port 32007 – for processing Backup/Restore/Delete/Replication requests.

HTTP Port 6060 – for processing WebService requests.

HTTP Port 6061 – for processing WebService requests.

In a few cases, ports are to be added to the Firewall exception list to ensure Vembu BDR is functioning smoothly for backups. Like Windows XP SP2/SP3, Vista & Windows 7 OS also have a built-in firewall which restrict ports opened by applications, these ports should be added to the Firewall exception list. Hence it is recommended to add the ports or VembuBDR.exe in the Firewall exception list for these operating systems.

The following ports are needed to be added to the Firewall exception list at the Vembu BDR Clients:

TCP Port 32005 – for processing Apache/PHP console requests to VembuBDR backend.

TCP Port 32008 – for processing Vembu BDR Exchange Mailbox backups in Windows 64 bit OS.

HTTP Port 6060 – for processing web console requests.

HTTP Port 6061 – for processing web console requests.

Once everything is set, run the following commands on your VembuBDR client agent to make sure its successfully connected to Vembu BDR backup server.

Step 1 : Run “”ping <server name="" ip="" address="">”” command.

Step 2 : Run “”nslookup <server name="">”” command.

Step 3 : Telnet <server name="" server="" ip="" address=""> 32004, 32007

If the above commands work, then backup should work from your Vembu Clients. You can also check the connectivity to the backup server from the client machine through 'Test Backup Server Connectivity' feature via the client’s web console.
