What ports to open in my firewall if using CloudConnect+R

Hello everyone,

As the subject reads, what ports does Veeam cloud connect plus replication use in order to effectively communicate from my office to our Veeam cloud service provider?

Thanks!

found this admin guide from ver8, in page 22 shows 3 TCP protocol ports 6169, 6168 & 6180.

Hopefully these are the only ones, can a veeam pro confirm this please :)

Thanks again!

We need a single port that you specify when adding a service provider.

that's simple enough...

So if we harden our firewall outbound traffic adding this single port to allow outbound would not cause any disruption?

Thanks Gostev!

You will be fine. Veeam Cloud Connect was designed from ground up to work over a single port, and this is one of its major selling points anyway (in addition to no VPN requirement).

Also, one port needs to be opened to Certificate Revocation site, if CA certificate is used. Thanks.
