Enterprise Vault™ Configuring a Windows Server's Firewall for File System Archiving

Last Published:
Product(s): Enterprise Vault (12.5, 12.2, 12.1)

Firewall access required for installing and using the FSA Agent

To enable the installation of the FSA Agent from a remote Administration Console, Enterprise Vault requires the same access as for archiving without the FSA Agent.

See Table: Windows server firewall ports required for archiving without the FSA Agent.

For File System Archiving with the FSA Agent, the FSA Agent programs also require access through the server's firewall.

Enterprise Vault installs the FSA Agent programs on the file server in the Enterprise Vault program folder, typically C:\Program Files (x86)\Enterprise Vault.

Table: Windows server firewall access required for the FSA Agent programs lists the FSA Agent programs and the ports and protocols to associate with them. You must configure the server's firewall to allow access for the programs whose functions you require.
