Step 2. Specify Backup Proxy Server Address

At this step of the wizard, specify a computer that you want to use as a backup proxy server, its port number and optional description.

  1. In the Host field, enter a DNS name or IP address of a computer that you want to use as a backup proxy server.

If the specified computer does not have a direct access to the internet, you can configure an internet proxy server for such a computer.

Make sure that the default admin share ADMIN$ (C:\Windows) is enabled on the specified computer.

  1. In the Port field, enter a port number to access the specified computer.
  2. If you want to add a domain backup proxy server, select the Use domain network check box. Otherwise, Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 will add a workgroup backup proxy server. For more information, see Backup Proxy Deployment Scenarios.



Once the backup proxy server is deployed, you will not be able to change its type from the domain backup proxy to the workgroup backup proxy and vice versa.

  1. In the Description field, enter optional description.
