Connection Settings

The following network connection settings must be configured for proper operation of Veeam Service Provider Console.

Discovering Client Computers and Installing Veeam Backup Agents

To discover client computers and deploy Veeam backup agents with discovery rules, make sure that these firewall rules are enabled for inbound traffic on client computers:

  • Remote Scheduled Tasks Management (RPC and RPC-EPMAP) is required for discovery
  • Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI-In) is required for discovery on Windows desktop OSes
  • File and Printer Sharing (SMB-In) is required to upload setup files
  • [For Linux computers] Make sure that SSH port is open

These rules are not required if you plan to deploy Veeam backup agents using 3rd party automation tools, or manually.
