With vCloud Director Extender - Cloud Service Setup UI, you can access the replicator and the replicator manager through a proxy server or a firewall. One of the appliance requirements are to provide a proxy with a public endpoint and configure rules to route the network traffic to the replication components.

Cloud Provider Proxy Configuration

For cloud provider configuration both the replicator and replicator manager require proxy server settings. You must make sure that a bidirectional communication between the on-premise replicator and the cloud provider replicator manager is possible. The replicator manager listens on port 8044.
