Software Requirements

You will need Microsoft .NET Framework 4.7.2 to open the agent.

Network Requirements

Migrations are upload-intensive by nature and so the speed of your migration will be heavily dependant on your internal and external network capacity. We recommend a 1Gb uplink speed over fiber where possible.

If you are experiencing performance issues with the agent, we recommend running a speed test and ensuring you are selecting a Migration region that is close to the agent.

Firewall Requirements

The Movebot agent communicates with the Movebot control plane and APIs exclusively via HTTPS. This means that no additional ports are needed to be opened. However, if your organization has a proxy server or web filter, you may need to allow the following domains out.
