Ports and communication protocols for Phoenix

Phoenix communicates with your NAS shares to back up and restore the data. This occurs through ports and protocols that are secure for communication and transition of data. Phoenix uses Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol to establish a connection and initiate communication between Phoenix components and your NAS device.

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