This article lists all Ports that are required for the Backup Exec DeDuplication option.


The following TCP ports need to be open in both directions:

  • Ports required for client side deduplication: 10102, 10082, 10101, 10085, 10000
  • Port required for PDDE classic: 10101
  • Ports required for Direct Access:
  • 10082 (spoold - Engine)
  • 10102 (spad - Manager)

If a firewall is blocking any of these ports, Deduplication will not work correctly.

To check if any other application is using these ports, refer to the Related Document below.
