Thank you for any assistance
Backup Exec 12 is installed on a Windows 2003 sp2 server.

Open in new window

Hello cbensonICS !

My suggestion is to add the trust of all communication between the two server only.

for example in linux (i don't know if your firewall are on windows or linux) :

 iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --source 192.168.1.1 -j ACCEPT
 iptables -A INPUT -p udp --source 192.168.1.1 -j ACCEPT

Maybe you can setup Backup Exec to use only one port. But the backup would be more slower.

Best Regards

Hello MadShiva,
Thank you for your response. The article that you noted had other notes attached. We used
article 284320 which pertains to the Linux Remote Agent Ralus.
http://seer.entsupport.symantec.com/docs/284320.htm
(article 284155 pertains to the Windows Remote Agent)
We originally had the firewall port 10000 open but not a secondary port range for data communication.
We first opened all internal communication and ran the backup. This was successful. We reviewed the log and found the port that was used for the data communication. We opened ten ports on the Linux box including this port and 9 others. We also disabled the opening of the all internal communications.  The backup failed. We then opened all communication from the Backup Exec media server and the backup was successful. We would prefer to be able to open 10 ports for communication rather than opening all communication from the media server. This is supposed to work, but we were unable to make it work. Do you have any other suggestions?
Thank you!!!
