Protocol

Port

Notes

Veeam Agent computer

Veeam backup server

TCP

10006

Default port used for communication with the Veeam backup server.

Data between the Veeam Agent for Linux computer and backup repositories is transferred directly, bypassing Veeam backup servers.

Shared folder SMB (CIFS) share

TCP
UDP

137 to 139,
445

Ports used as a data transmission channel from the Veeam Agent for Linux computer to the target SMB (CIFS) share.

Ports 137 to 139 are used by backup infrastructure components to communicate using NetBIOS.

Shared folder NFS share

TCP
UDP

111,
2049

Standard NFS ports used as a data transmission channel from the Veeam Agent for Linux computer to the target NFS share.

Veeam Agent computer

TCP

2500 to 3300

Default range of ports used for communication between Veeam Agent for Linux components during data transmission. For every TCP connection that a backup job uses, one port from this range is assigned.

Ports must be open for incoming and outgoing traffic. Established connections must be allowed.

Communication with Veeam Backup & Replication Repositories

Veeam Agent computer

Linux server performing the role of a backup repository

TCP

2500 to 3300

Default range of ports used as data transmission channels. For every TCP connection that a backup job uses, one port from this range is assigned.

Microsoft Windows server performing the role of a backup repository

TCP

49152 to 65535 
(for Microsoft Windows 2008 and newer)

Dynamic RPC port range. For more information, see this Microsoft article.

TCP

2500 to 3300

Default range of ports used as data transmission channels. For every TCP connection that a backup job uses, one port from this range is assigned.

Communication with Veeam Cloud Connect Repositories

Veeam Agent computer

Cloud gateway

TCP

6180

Port on the cloud gateway used to transport Veeam Agent data to the Veeam Cloud Connect repository.

Certificate Revocation Lists

TCP

80 or 443 (most popular)

Veeam Agent computer needs access to CRLs (Certificate Revocation Lists) of the CA (Certification Authority) who issued a certificate to the Veeam Cloud Connect service provider.

Generally, information about CRL locations can be found on the CA website.
