Retrospect back up machine can't find linux client

Recommended Posts



I am running retrospect 7.5 professional on windows xp. I just installed retrospect 7.5 client on a fedora core 4 machine. When I try and add the client by going to Configure->Clients in the windows xp copy of retrospect, I get error 530 (backup client not found).


When running /etc/init.d/rcl status on linux it says:



Version 7.5.112

back up according to normal schedule

currently on

readonly is off

exclude is off

0 connections, 0 authenticated

Please help!


Thanks in advance,

Hi Robin,


Usually error -530 means your firewall is not allowing communication on the port Retrospect uses. Make sure your firewall allows communicate on port 497 for both TCP and UDP and try again.
