Re: Question about backup scenario (long)
Yes, in prompted mode you have one more port to worry about. Polling mode
uses the port for data transfers while prompting uses separate port. The
reason is the need to drive in prompting mode the client on the TSM server
itself. Thus server is on 1500 (default) and prompted client is on 1501.

But as far as I understand it, once the scheduler in prompted mode
is initiated by the server to do the backup, the baclient will still
initiate a connection from the outside to the server on port 1500 or
whatever port is configured.
