No. Backups over the Internet is not possible with DLO.

Check the following technote for backing over the net in Backup Exec.

Hi,

Actually backups over the Internet using a VPN IS supported. Check your version of BE's Admin Guide for further information.

You need a VPN otherwise shares won't be available meaning no backups.

Thanks!

Hello,

is there a plan to tunnel all the connections to only one or two ports ?
Access to windows RPC and SMB port is nice to sync local machines, but it is more annoying for BYOD or exotic machines.

Is there's a way to use some kind of proxy machine between the clients and the server ?
(even if we use a VPN)

Thanks,
NH
