Ports and communication protocols for Phoenix

Phoenix communicates with your File servers to backup and restores the data from your File servers. This communication happens through ports and protocols that are secure for communication and transition of data.

Phoenix uses Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol for establishing a connection and initiating communication between Phoenix components and your File servers.

The following diagram depicts the ports and communication protocols that are used by Phoenix for secure connection and communication during the backup and restore operations.
