Can Retrospect 7.7 Windows Run Under Windows 7 Firewall?

Recommended Posts

Dear All,


I just upgraded my laptop from Windows XP to Windows 7 64-bit with site-wide firewall policy on.

When I try to backup my drives using Retrospect 7.7 from a server, nothing works due to "Retrospect Client" is not under Windows 7 "allow programs" list.


Is there anyway to go around this other than asking my firewall team to make exception?

You need to make sure port 497 is open for UDP and TCP traffic on the backup server and client.


Much thanks for the reply!

I saw the port 497 number from the Retrospect manual (or blog) and was hoping there are other means to get around it. Opening a port within my company will involve a big review and I just try to avoid that.
