XP Pro not able to backup

Recommended Posts

Hi guys can anybody help?

 

We are running retropect 6 on a mixed Mac and PC network. We have a machine running XP pro which we cannot back up.

 

We've turned off the Firewall and we can ping the machine, We can even see it in the client subnet dialogue box. However, when we select it we keep getting the error 530 client not found.

 

any suggestions?

 

Mike

 

 

please?

Firewall is the first to check, but you knew that one already.

But there's no need to disable it completely:

Yes we tried it with the ports enabled etc etc and decided just to try with the firewall switched off.

Have you tried adding the client by IP address?

We have Win 2000 Retrospect server, XP Pro clients and Mac clients, but don't have your problem. We opened the ports on the XP firewall and have no problems. Sorry I can't be of more help.

Hi,

 

Do you have any network filter restricting connection to that particular computer? Could you receive and send file from that computer to your backup computer?

 

Thanks
