With vCloud Director Extender - OnPrem Setup UI you can access the replicator service through a proxy server or a gateway. 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.

On-premise Proxy Configuration

For on-premise configuration, only the replicator requires proxy server settings. You must configure the proxy rules before adding a new cloud provider. During the replicator registration, the messages go through the proxy to the replicator, therefore you must make sure that a bidirectional communication between the on-premise replicator and the cloud provider replicator manager is possible. The replicator listens on port 8083 for management data and on port 44045 for replicator data.
