Q. Why won't my VM-based Agent connect to Copia?

Networking from a Virtual Machine may be complex. VM's typically offer both a Bridged and NAT-based networking option, and there may also be port requirements in your environment. Though both should work without issue if configured correctly, we have seen in many cases that using NAT-based networking is less complex than Bridged, and can prove that the VM "can" connect to the Copia server. We recommend trying this, and if connection is established, work with your internal IT to discern why Bridged is not able to do the same in your environment.
