    client not visible

    I have read many postings here regarding this problem, but none yet seems to pinpoint the issue for me. Some background that will hopefully narrow any suggestions Both backup machine and laptop (client) are running OSX 10.2 I am running Restrospect 5.0 and client version 5.0.540 I had no problems until I recently moved and simultaneously changed to a Belkin wires 54g wireless router Both my backup server and the laptop in question are connected via ethernet ports on the Belkin (i.e. not wireless) I am using static IP not DHCP (same setup as when it worked previously) I am not running a personal firewall on either computer I have checked the interfaces and made the ethernet on each the top one as suggested in tech info Using the backup server I can both ping the laptop and using IPNetMonitor I can connected to the UDP port on the laptop used by the restrospect client. The client is running and providing me regular warnings I haven't backed up recently I have tried forgetting the client and it makes no difference. Everything else (file sharing web access etc) is working fine from the laptop Initially I thought that the most likely thing was that I chanced from at 10bt hub to the belkin since it was mentioned that some hubs/routers do not support the UDP/TCP connections required by retrospect. However, as mentioned, I can both ping TCP and connect via IPNeMonitor via UDP to the retrospect port on the laptop client machine. I am at a loss for what to do nex. Suggestions greatly appreciated.

    10.2 screwed me

    No the system profiler does not list the drive. I do not remember checking system profiler with 10.1 but the drive worked flawlessly with Retrospect until I updated to 10.2. What I really would like to know, from Dantz or others, is: 1. Is there a way around this now? 2. Is Apple or Dantz expected to provide an update to allow me to use the drive? I am quite frustrated right now because I have no backups since updating to 10.2 and potentially could lose all recent data in the event of a drive crash. I may have to resort to removing an external scsi drive from one of my other computers for backkup until this is resolved. The big question to me is whether it is likely to be resolved.
  3. I had Retrospect running using an internal Travan tape drive without any problems in 10.1.5 and all earlier systems. Since upgrading to 10.2 my internal travan tape drive can no longer be seen by Retropsect! I read the note that there is a problem with Jaguar and recognition of tape drives- and the suggestion to turn on the drive a few seconds before starting the computer. This doesn't apply to me because mine is an internal drive. I even tried making sure a tape was in the drive when I started the computer with no luck. Is there any solution to this problem? I am running without the ability to do backups and not very happy about it. I realize this may be more an Apple issue than Dantz issue, the result is the same to me. Thanks for any suggestions you can provide.
