If you use a Public IP without NAT, please only allow the following ports on your firewall:
9201 for backup.securemin.com
10051 for mon.securemin.com
10050 for mon.securemin.com

Please keep in mind that if your server is behind a NAT or there is a firewall behind it, you will have to enable port forwarding for 10050 and 10051. Such port forwarding is a common requirement for service providers such as: Amazon S3, Microsoft Azure and Google cloud platform.
