ntwork services used by Data Protector

Jump to solution
I have disabled a number of services in /etc/inetd.conf on an HP-UX 11.11 system. When I tried to install a Data Protector client on this box, I was not able. I had to enable all the services that were disabled.
Does anybody know which network services does Data Protector use when you install a client on a remote host?

Data protector installation by default use the rexec service, port 5555 is opened by the DP Inet agent after installation and it is also appended to the inet.conf

You can temporaly enable this service (rexec) to do your initial installation, after that it is not needed anymore.

You need to enable secure setting that limits connections to port 5555

But data Protector uses ports other than 5555 to install clients on other servers, right? Do you know what other port(s) it uses?
