  1. Hi all I recently installed Client for Linux x64 on a Cent OS 7.3 system and it works fine. Now I want to add encryption but I fid not find anything in the documentation where the private key has to be put. I have activated "Encrypt Network Link" in the clients's settings but I suspect this does not really work unless the private key is present on the client side. Hints, tips and informed information is greatly appreciated. Matt
  2. Thanks for the clarification. It would perhaps be helpful to put it into the documentation. Same goes for handling of key files.
  3. Are Instant Scan and block level incremental backup available with Linux clients?

    Failure on second backup of Windows clients

    I have attached the crash log.
  5. I'm encountering problems backing up Windows clients with b526 running on PPC Tiger Server 10.4.11. The first (proactive) backup of new Windows source works fine if slowly. Incrementing that backup invariably fails. What happens is that Retrospect scans the Windows client and after completing the scan, the console disconnects from the backup server and the whole thing just starts over again. I have tried on multiple clients running different versions of the Windows client software, i.e. the one used together without problems on 6.1 and the latest one recommended for use with 8.1. My demo is expiring tomorrow and I can't consider upgrading under these circumstances. I'm sorry to say that version 8 looks like a nice try that doesn't quite make it. Basically it's still beta. I'm relying on Retrospect to backup our network of Macs, Windows and later Linux computers since version 4.3. By and large I was pretty pleased and never encountered similar persistent problems before. I have to stick to 6.1 for the time being.

    Russ, thanks. There is such a log, I can't make much of it, though.

    Thanks for the reply. Where do I find that crash log?
