About NetBackup appliance ports
In addition to the ports used by NetBackup software, NetBackup appliances also provide for both in-band and out-of-band management. The out-of-band management is through a separate network connection, the Remote Management Module (RMM), and the Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI). You can open these ports through the firewall as appropriate to allow access to the management services from a remote laptop or KVM (keyboard, video monitor, mouse).
For a list of the appliance ports that are open by default before and after the initial configuration, refer to the following topic:
The NetBackup Appliance Web Console is available only over HTTPS on the default port 443. Use
https://<appliance-name> to log in to the Web Console, where appliance-name is the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the appliance and can also be an IP address.
Table: Outbound ports lists the ports outbound from the appliance to allow alerts and notifications to the indicated servers.
