Preparing the Network

Take into consideration the following when you're preparing your network to connect to Transfer Appliance:

  • Security: Many networks implement strict security policies. These policies can prevent Transfer Appliance from functioning properly because they block certain network ports or filter certain types of network traffic. Review the information in this section to ensure that your network is set up to work properly with the Transfer Appliance.

  • Performance: The configuration and capabilities of the network environment have a significant impact on the speed and success of the capture process. For better capture performance, use as few network hops between the data source and Transfer Appliance as possible. For an appliance capture scenario, place Transfer Appliance on the same subnet as the data source, if possible. Similarly, for a workstation capture scenario, place both the workstation and the data source on the same subnet as Transfer Appliance.

  • Network and port address translation: Transfer Appliance doesn't support Network Address Translation (NAT) or Port Address Translation (PAT), so it won't work in network configurations where Transfer Appliance and a workstation are separated by a network device performing NAT or PAT.

  • Network connectivity: Before running a capture job, test network connectivity between Transfer Appliance and either the workstation for a workstation capture or the network share containing the data for an appliance capture. See Testing Network Connectivity.

Identifying and configuring firewall ports

You may need to open ports in the firewall so that Transfer Appliance can communicate with computers on the network. The following tables describe the ports that are open on Transfer Appliance and the ports that need to be open on computers that communicate with the appliance.

What's next

Once you have prepared your network for data transfer, set up and configure the appliance.
