- What ports does inSync use for backup and restore?
By default, inSync uses port 443 for backup, restore, and share operations. For web-enabled restores via HTTPS, inSync uses port 443.
- Can I change the ports that inSync uses?
Yes, you can. To know how this is done, see Changing the Master server ports.
- Which protocols does inSync support?
inSync Private Cloud supports communication via HTTPS. To know how you can load your own SSL certificate, see Loading your SSL certificate.
- Can I determine the Quality of Service of the inSync traffic?
We do not perform Quality of Service (QoS) tests. However, you can use third-party tools to determine the QoS of your inSync traffic.
- Which type of proxy does inSync support?
inSync only supports forward proxy servers.
- Does inSync support PAC files and WPAD?
Yes, it does. To see how inSync client is configured to recognize a proxy server using PAC files and WPAD URLs, see Configuring proxy settings using PAC files.
- How much bandwidth do I need to back up user data?
The bandwidth requirements depend on how large your inSync setup is. Generally, inSync clients require a minimum bandwidth of 16 Kbps and 64 Kbps to ensure backups over WAN and LAN respectively. If your bandwidth falls to a value lower than 16 Kbps or 64 Kbps, backups will fail.
As a good practice, you must ensure that the throughput be a value that is equivalent to the aggregate of write speeds for all backups. We recommend the latency to be a multiple of 10, but not exceeding 100 ms.
- How can I throttle bandwidth for restores?
We do not support throttling of bandwidth for restores out-of-the-box.
