The Backup Manager relies on the following ports:

  1. Port 443 TCP outbound. It is almost always open on workstations but may be closed on servers.

  2. Local port 5000. If this port is unavailable, the Backup Manager detects a free port automatically (starting from 5001, 5002 and up).

In most cases, no firewall configuration is required.
