How to Manage Computers over the WAN in EaseUS Backup Center

Daisy updated on Sep 23, 2019 to Todo Backup Resource | How-to Articles

To add and fully manage computers over the WAN is supported in EaseUS Backup Center. To fulfill this goal, you need to assign in your enterprise-class router a static port ID for each computer to be managed and next make this computer to be recognized and accessed in EaseUS Backup Center with its public IP address and port ID. 

Let's use an example to explain how to manage this in a specific network environment.

This sample configuration is for the following environment:

  • Internet connection type: xDSL or cable internet
  • Type of IP address provided by Internet Service Provider (ISP): static*
  • IP address provided by ISP: 111.222.123.1 (sample only)
  • Network devices: 1 laptop, 2 Desktops
  • IP address of Laptop: 192.168.0.1
  • IP address of Desktop 1: 192.168.0.10
  • IP address of Desktop 2: 192.168.0.20
  • LAN-side address of router: 192.168.0.254 (sample only)

In general conditions only the enterprise-class router provides you the feature to expose an internal computer to public and allows you to remotely manage the backup with Internet connection. This feature is also known as NAT (Network Address Translation). Normally, it can be found in Virtual Server setting after you login your router configuration page. Just like the picture below:

(Different router models might have different setting pages, the screen shot is just for your reference.)

In the Virtual Server setting page, please create a new operation for each of the computer to be managed, set the private port to 4698, and assign a unique public port ID to the computer.

(The example in here shows in op. ID 4, the public port 6002 was assigned to Desktop 2, while in op. ID 5, 6001 was connected to Desktop 1).

For your reference: The port ID 4698 required for private port is the communication port of EaseUS Backup Center. We use this ID to build connection by adding a new translation policy, so all access to a specific public port can be correctly transferred to the appointed internal computer.  

After the setting in this example, the Desktop 1 can be recognized and accessed with the unique address 111.222.123.1:6001 in the network, while Desktop 2 can be accessed with 111.222.123.1:6002.

The network environment after the configuration is as below:

Port Forwarding

After the configuration in your router setting, you can start adding your computers in EaseUS Backup Center.

Below is a screen shot of how to add Desktop 1 in the example. The account required in here is the administrator account of the computer you need to add (that is Desktop 1 admin account in here)

Desktop 1 has been added to your Backup Center:

You can follow the same steps to add and manage all the other computers.

Kindly reminder:

  1. 1. Your public ID has to be a static IP. A dynamic IP address will cause the computer added fails to be recognized and accessed by EaseUS Backup Center.
  2. 2. Only the enterprise-class router provides you the feature to assign port ID for your computers. If you are using a family-class router, please change to an enterprise-class router.
  3. 3. The ID 4698 and 4700 are the communication ports for EaseUS Todo Backup and EaseUS Backup Center. Please make sure not to assign these 2 IDs to the other applications on your computer.

What is the difference between Clone and Backup? In what cases should I use Clone?

Clone will copy one disk to another or one partition to another (unallocated space is also supported). Usually, this option is used to upgrade the current disk by creating an identical copy. Backup will generate a .PBD image file containing the selected files or system that can be restored from the .PBD image if needed.

What is the difference between System Backup and Disk Backup?

System Backup will auto-select the system boot related partition(s) as the backup source to make sure the system image can be restored properly. Disk/Partition Backup will allow you to manually select a whole disk or speficy a certain partition as the backup source. You will get the same backup result as System Backup if you manually select the system and boot partitions with the Disk/Partition Backup option.

As a computer newbie, what features should I use to protect my computer?

You can use System Backup to back up the system and boot partitions, use Disk/Partition backup to back up the data partition and add plans to run an automatic backup. If you use the computer frequently or have software that may cause boot failure of the computer, we would suggest you back up the computer every 1 to 2 days. For other situations, you can backup the computer once a week. In addition, you can schedule File Backup to back up the files which are changed frequently.

What kind of storage service should I use to save my backup images?

EaseUS Todo Backup can save backup images to internal disks, external disks, network drives, or free cloud(Google Drive, Dropbox, and OneDrive) and CD/DVD. It is suggested to save the images to the internal/external/network drives to save time as those kinds of disks have a better read-write speed. It is suggested NOT to save the image on the source disk, because once the disk is damaged, all the files on the disk will become unavailable and you will be unable to restore the image.

As a company network administrator, what features should I use to protect our internal computers?

It is recommended that you use the SQL Backup feature to back up your company's SQL server and Exchange Backup feature to back up the Exchange server. In addition, you can execute System Backup to back up the system and boot partitions on every computer and set a plan to execute the backup once a day or twice a week to ensure that the computer can be restored timely when it has boot issues. File Backup feature can be used to back up important user data. If there are a large quantity of computers, you can purchase EaseUS Backup Center to manage the backups on the client computers centrally.
