Veeam B&R SQL Log Shipping and Firewall Rules

I was looking at which ports that should be open in a Firewall, for SQL log Shipping to work, so I was looking at the "VM Guest OS Connection" section of the documentation: https://helpcenter.veeam.com/backup/vsphere/used_ports.html#guest

But that is not all that needs to be opened you also have to look at the "Backup Server Connections" section and open for this:

From

To

Protocol

Port

Notes

Microsoft Windows server

Backup server

TCP

2500 to 5000

Default range of ports used as transmission channels for jobs writing to Microsoft Windows target. For every TCP connection that a job uses, one port from this range is assigned.

Notes: This may also apply to Oracle, Guest indexing and other, I haven't checked.
