4.2 Install Backup Agents

 ATTENTION: we remind you that in the Server, on which the Backup Agent is being installed, there's a  Firewall which blocks the OUTBOUND traffic, this needs to allow outbound traffic on the following ports: 25 - 80 - 443 - 8087 - 8086 - 2546 - 807.
The default configurations of the Windows system don't need any changes on the ports.
Before you proceed, be sure to have the following details which are available in the Backup Account technical details page:
  • the "Evault URL" address [r1-it1.backup.cloud.it]
