The solution to manage computers over the WAN in EaseUS Backup Center in different area

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: (sample only)

    Network devices: 1 laptop, 2 Desktops

    IP address of Laptop:

    IP address of Desktop 1:

    IP address of Desktop 2:

    LAN-side address of router: (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:

Set network port in Virtual Server setting of router
(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 in the network, while Desktop 2 can be accessed with

The network environment after the configuration is as below:

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)

Input IP address and network port in backup center

Desktop 1 has been added to your Backup Center:

Check the computer information in backup center after adding it

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

Kindly reminder:

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. 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. 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.
