Enabled access to Azure public IP addresses on the outbound port 3260

New Contributor

Hi Guys,


I am new to the Azure and just started to get the hands -on.


I am trying to File Recovery, upon running the script I am getting 'Please make sure that you have enabled access to Azure public IP addresses on the outbound port 3260 and https://download.microsoft.com'


I have added the port 3260 to my local windows firewall but still unable to get working.


Looking for your feedback.

Hi, you must configure an NSG (Network Security Group) in the Azure Portal either at the NIC or at the subnet where your VM (NIC) is assigned. An NSG is a simple form of firewall rules. So that you can establish communication through the port you mentioned. Please have a look:


I hope it helps! Regards, Tom Wechsler


@TomWechsler Thank You for the help. It was my bad that I was trying to restore on other PC/VM rather than on the VM which is being backed-up. 


Thanks again.

Hi Tom, I followed the below rules as part of NSG outbound security rules, and I run into the same error:

  • AzureFrontDoor.FirstParty service tag in NSG on port 443 (outbound)
  • Recovery Service, AzureBackup service tag in NSG on port 3260 (outbound)
  • Public DNS resolution on port 53 (outbound)
