Veeam Endpoint Backup over Internet

Veeam Logoby qUoTuM » Wed Jun 29, 2016 1:01 pm

Hi,

I am searching for a backup solution for our home office employees. Right now I am trying to use Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE.
We already have Veeam B&R for our VMs so it would be a nice addition.
I created a new repository for it and forwarded port 10001 and 2500-5000 to the Server where B&R is running (NAT). I can create a job on the remote computer and use the repository but as soon as i click on "Backup now" there comes a failure where it says that the server did not respond + an internal IP. Of course he can't connect to the internal IP over the Internet. But why is he even trying when I specified the external IP in the job settings?
What am I doing wrong?

Hello Kevin,

Unfortunately, backup to Veeam Backup and Replication behind NAT is not supported in the current version.

Is it going to be supported in the future?
Any way I can go around this?

The workaround would be to use backup copy jobs, which will grab backup file from the Veeam backup local repository and then transfer it to your main site. Yes, we do keep this feature in mind for our next releases, no ETA though.

Hi, I'm investigating a similar scenario in which a physical server with files ( up to 500GB) exists on a customer's site. I intend to setup VEBF on customer's file server and then cloud version of VBR at our end and then do backup copy from the repository on the file server to our side. please confirm if this will work fine. Also will WAN accelerator be usable as the backup of about 500GB of data will needs to go across a 3Mbps Internet link. Is there any special network setup required to make this work?

Yes, it should work just fine. Just follow the advice from my previous post.

No special network setup is required. WAN accelerator will allow you to save on the amount of transferred data.
