Problem

A firewall installed on the target server blocks recovering files / objects with NAKIVO Backup & Replication.

Background

A firewall installed on the target server is not configured properly to allow recovering files / objects with NAKIVO Backup & Replication.

Solution

Linux

Proceed as follows to configure the firewall on Linux:

  1. Login to the server to be used for restoring files / objects.
  2. Make sure that the firewalld package is installed:
    dpkg --status firewalld
  3. Open the TCP port 9445 for the firewalld daemon:
    firewall-cmd --add-port=9445/tcp
  4. To check the port is opened, run the command:
    firewall-cmd --list-ports 9445/tcp

Alternatively, place the file named bhsvc.xml with the following content to the folder /etc/firewalld/services/:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
