Client 9.5 don´t start on Ubuntu 12.04 x64

Recommended Posts

Hi together,

 

i have install a new Retrospect Client 9.5 on a Ubuntu x64 12.04 server.

the server have two network cards and i start the rcl script with this option:

CLIENTDIR=/usr/local/retrospect/client
case $1 in
    start)
    $CLIENTDIR/retroclient -ip 192.168.221.82
    # $CLIENTDIR/retroclient &
    ;;
    stop)
    $CLIENTDIR/retrocpl -stop
    ;;
    status)
    $CLIENTDIR/retrocpl
    ;;
    *)
    echo "Usage: $0 {start|stop|status}"
    ;;
esac
exit 0
 

But if i start the /etc/init.d/rcl start, i get this error:

netEnumInterfaces: error invalid ip address specified 192.168.221.82:0
 

What is wrong?

 

Best regards

gunter

netEnumInterfaces: error invalid ip address specified 192.168.221.82:0

 

The :0 at the end suggests to me that it is trying to communicate using IP Port 0 which is not a usable port.

 

$CLIENTDIR/retroclient -ip 192.168.221.82

Try changing the IP address to 192.168.221.82:497. Port 497 is the IANA assigned port used by Retrospect. (I've never used Retrospect on Linux and my Linux knowledge is limited so this is just speculation.)
