Networking requirements

Before you can start using QoreStor, ensure that you have satisfied the following networking prerequisites:

  • Network: An active network is available using Ethernet cables and connections.
  • Replication ports: the replication service in QoreStor requires that enabled fixed ports be configured to support replication operations that are to be performed across firewalls (TCP ports 9904, 9911, 9915, and 9916).

    NOTE: For more information about replication ports, see Managing replications, and for more information about system ports, see the QoreStor Installation Guide.

  • Proxy servers: when using a proxy server, some additional configurations are required. Refer to Configurations required when using proxy servers.

Configurations required when using proxy servers

If you have configured your QoreStor instance to use one or both of the Linux exports below, the QoreStor Watcher service will not be able to function properly as watcher communications will be sent to the proxy.

	export http_proxy=http://<hostname>:<port>
	export https_proxy=http://<hostname>:<port>

To ensure proper operation, you must also include the no_proxy export.

	export no_proxy="localhost,"

NOTE: In order for these configurations to persist after a system reboot, they must be entered into /etc/environment.
