Adding Clients with two NIC cards

Recommended Posts

I have an NT server with two network cards on two different networks that I would like to add as a Retrospect 5.6 client. The client installs fine and says "waiting for first access" in its control panel, but I cannot see it from the backup server, even when typing the IP address (which I can see). I tried changing the IP binding order so that the network the backup server was on was the first network that TCP/IP binds, but I still cannot get it to work. Any suggestions?

You must be using NT/2000/XP and want to force the client to bind to a FIXED address.


1. Use the services control panel to halt the Retrospect Client service.


2. In Regedit, go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Dantz\Client\5.0


3. Change the BindListener value from "" to the desired address.


4. Start the client service, open the control panel & verify the status is Ready or Waiting for first access.




*remember if your network uses a DHCP server to assign IP addresses, once you are assigned a new address you will need to update the bind listener in the registry to reflect the address change.
