Configure communication settings of the Disaster Recovery backup agent for Windows

You can change the password and port used by the backup agent to communicate with the Backup & Disaster Recovery appliance.

In the appliance Management Console:

  1. Go to ClientsEdit, select the desired client.

  2. In the General group, select Generate a new password.

  3. In the Client Networking group, specify a new port.

    By default, the backup agent communicates with appliance via port 9102. When changing the port, keep in mind that ports 9103, 9104, and 9105 are reserved for other purposes. To avoid possible conflicts, do not use them.

  4. Click Apply to save changes.

  5. Click Activate configuration so the changes take effect.
