Linux client on machine with multiple IPs

Recommended Posts

I was having trouble setting up my retrospect client (6.0.143-1) on a linux machine (RH7.2) that had multiple IP addresses defined. Although the client appeared in the list of potential machines when I tried to add it to the Retrospect console, it'd always say that it was unable to connect to the machine. By running "retroclient --help" I discovered that it had a -ip option that you can use to make it bind to a single IP address. So, I modified /etc/rc.d/init.d/rcl to call retroclient with an extra "-ip nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn" address where the nnn... is the primary IP address of the machine. Then it worked OK.
