[Veritas-bu] Port selection

The simple answer is no.
Especially if there is an NT involved, NT does Random port selection.
Now if it's UNIX, you can get it to use ports 1025 to 5000 in order, by
reducing the socket timeout, you may be able to get away with 100 open ports
plus the normal communication ones, 13782, 13720, 13780 and so on.
Hope this helps.

Subject: [Veritas-bu] Port selection
I have read through some of the archive logs, and did not find a definative
answer for this question:
Can NBU 3.2 be forced to back up on a specific, pre-defined port?
We are trying to back up our firewalls, and the firewall guys are not very
receptive to opening all those ports...
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
