Veeam B&R SQL Log Shipping and Firewall Rules

April 26, 2016 0 By Allan Kjaer

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:

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:






Microsoft Windows server

Backup server


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.
