Setting up a One-Way Direct Connection (Client to CommServe) Using Advanced Network Settings

You can configure clients or client groups to establish direct connections toward the CommServe computer and MediaAgent.

If the basic network settings do not provide a sufficient level of control for your direct connection routes, you can use advanced network settings to manually configure the network routes. For example, you can configure incoming connection restrictions, ports, and keep-alive intervals.

The advanced configuration includes additional configuration steps and is recommended for experienced users.

Process Flow

  1. To change the default tunnel port on the CommServe computer and MediaAgent, see Updating Incoming Ports on the CommServe and MediaAgent.

    The default tunnel port is the Commvault Communications (CVD) service port plus 3 (for example, 8403).

  2. Install the Commvault software on one or more clients. During client installation, configure the client to initiate communications with the CommServe computer. For network settings instructions during the installation, see Setting Up Direct Connections from the Client to the CommServe Computer.
  3. Configure the CommServe computer.

    Perform network configurations on the CommServe computer to receive communications from the client. See Configuring the CommServe Computer.

  4. Configure the MediaAgents.

    Perform network configurations on the MediaAgents to receive communications from the client. See Configuring the MediaAgents.

  5. Configure the clients.

    Perform network configurations on the client to initiate connections with the CommServe computer and MediaAgent. See Configuring the Clients.
