NetWorker iptables Settings for Linux

There are a several ports that need to be opened in iptables to allow NetWorker to backup a Linux client. 

Edit the iptables file with vi or another text editor.

#Open up access from hava2.its.uwo.pri (172.29.25.102) 
-A INPUT -s 172.29.25.102 -j ACCEPT 
#Open up access from hava1.its.uwo.pri (172.25.137.11) 
-A INPUT -s 172.25.137.11 -j ACCEPT 

Now that you have made the appropriate changes to the iptables file, you need to restart the iptables daemon. The command to do this if you are using RedHat or Fedora is as follows:

service iptables restart
