Backup issues over a perimeter network

Can anybody provide answers to the following important questions?

1. Can multiple DMZ Hosts be backed up over a perimeter network using CA BrightStor?

2. What rights are required to do a backup over a perimeter network using CA BrightStor?

3. Have there been or are there any known issues with backing up multiple DMZ hosts over the perimeter network?

First, Brighstor is a line. There is BrighStor ArcServe and BrighStor Enterprise Backup. I assume you're referring to BEB, as most people mean BEB when they say "BrightStor."

Now, on to your question. DMZ backup is usually an advanced feature of most backup packages, as it involves some difficult stuff. The biggest issue is whether or not you can address these hosts by their real IP addresses (i.e., no NAT). If that's the case, you should be able to do it. If not, things can be very difficult and there are very few products that can handle that.
