Setting up Proxy Connections Using Basic Firewall Settings

You can configure clients or client groups to connect to the CommServe computer and MediaAgent through a proxy.

The Basic firewall setting specifies whether, and how often, the client is on the same network as the CommServe computer and MediaAgent.

The basic configuration is recommended for new firewall users.

Note: The basic configuration is not available for MediaAgents.

Procedure

  1. Set up the Commvault Proxy.
  2. Install the Commvault software on one or more clients.

    During the client installation, configure the client to connect to the CommServe computer through a proxy. For firewall instructions during the installation, see Setting Up Connectivity to the CommServe Computer Using a Proxy.

  3. Configure the client or client group using the Basic firewall setting:
    1. From the CommCell Browser, right-click the client or client group, and then click Properties.

      The client properties or client group properties dialog box appears.

    2. Click Network.

      The Network Properties dialog box appears.

    3. On the Firewall Configuration tab, select the Configure Firewall Settings check box, and then confirm that Basic is selected.
    4. Choose an option for establishing connectivity with the CommServe through the Commvault proxy:
      • If the client and CommServe reside on different networks, select Always outside of CommServe network.
      • If the client does not always reside on the CommServe network, select May travel outside of CommServe network. We recommend this option for laptop computers and other mobile devices.
    5. Select the Use Galaxy proxy option, then select the Commvault proxy that you configured above.
    6. On the MediaAgent Connectivity tab, choose an option for establishing connectivity with the MediaAgent through the Commvault proxy:
      • If the client and MediaAgent reside on different networks, select Always outside of MediaAgent network.
      • If the client does not always reside on the MediaAgent network, select May travel outside of MediaAgent network. We recommend this option for laptop computers and other mobile devices.
    7. Select the Use Galaxy proxy option, then select the Commvault proxy that you configured above.
    8. Click the Summary tab. Confirm that you see the connection route details for the outgoing routes between the CommServe, MediaAgent and client, then click OK.

      The firewall configuration is automatically pushed to the client, CommServe and MediaAgent computers.

Result

The client has been configured to communicate with the CommServe computer and MediaAgent through the Commvault proxy.
