Client side dedup confusion

I am confused. I have a number of clients in my environment some will dedup on the client side and some will fail with an 83 error. In the dedup guide it states that ports 10082 and 10102 have to be open between the hosts and the media servers.

These ports are not open anywhere on the environment yet some clients are happliy deduping on the client side but most aren't.

can anyone elaborate on this?

  • In addition I have tried to telnet the ports 10082 and 10102 from the MSDP media server to the client and there is no connection - yet client side dedup is working - why is this? Does anyone know why? 7.7 dedup guide say these ports need to be open for client side dedup to work yet it is working for some clients and the ports sre definitley not open.

    This is very confusing.

    Thanks

      These ports mus be opened from client to MediaServer 10102 is for Deduplication Manager and 10082 is for Deduplication Engine. 1) Check that firewall on W2K12 client is stopped or allow these ports to communicate. 2) Check DNS entries in direct and reverse zone

        I know the guide says that - the ports are not open I cannot telnet the client from the media server on them. Yet as I say it is working for some clients and not for others?

        Why will client side dedup work (on some clients) when these ports are closed?

        Thanks
