Data transmission to Veritas
The required telemetry information is uploaded to Veritas in two different ways. Your upload method choice depends on your preference.
By default, the data is uploaded automatically every day. This method requires the least user intervention and ensures the Usage Insights data is current.

NetBackup 8.1.2 and later
If you have NetBackup 8.1.2 and later, the automatic upload requires an open port on your firewall to transmit HTTPS traffic. The default port for HTTPS traffic is port 443.
NetBackup 8.3 and later
If you have NetBackup 8.3 and later, you can use the unauthenticated proxy server with HTTP protocol to upload the data automatically and you do not require to open a port on your firewall.
NetBackup 9.1 and later
If you have NetBackup 9.1 and later, you can use authenticated proxy server with HTTP or HTTPS protocol or unathenticated proxy server with HTTP or HTTPS protocol with the nbcallhomeproxyconfig command and you do not require to open a port on your firewall.
If your environment does not allow for automatic uploads, you can manually upload the required telemetry information.
