Used Ports Note:

Configuring dynamic RPC range is not required when using default Microsoft Windows firewall settings as Veeam Backup & Replication automatically creates an associated firewall rule for the runtime process during installation. When using custom firewall settings or if application-aware processing fails with the RPC function call failed error, make sure to configure dynamic RPC ports manually.
