Problem connecting with 10.2.5 Client?

Recommended Posts

This backup was working perfect for over a month.

 

I have a 10.2.4 Server with Retro 5.0.238 WG, and a 10.2.5 (Just updated from .4) client, (Retro 5.0.540) It appears that since the 10.2.5 update Retro will not connect to the client. Error -1028

 

I updated with the 3.5.104 5.0 update, made no difference.

 

I can log into the client just fine from "Connect to Server" so it is not a network issue. (Both ways) Verified the IP address is accurate.

 

I reinstalled the client. No change.

 

Told Retro. to "Forget" the client and attempted to add it agin. Click on nework and it sees the client, but when I click on configure, I get the -1028 error after a couple seconds.

 

Any suggestions?

I have:

 

#################################################

## Retrospect

#################################################

add 2009 allow tcp from any to any 497 in via en0

add 2009 allow tcp from any 497 to any out via en0

 

#################################################

## Retrospect UDP

#################################################

add 2010 allow udp from any to any 497 in via en0

add 2010 allow udp from any 497 to any out via en0

 

I believe you also need:

#################################################

## Non-Privileged Ports (TCP)

#################################################

add 2042 allow tcp from any to any 1024-65535 in via en0

add 2042 allow tcp from any 1024-65535 to any out via en0

 

Put this at or near the end of your ipfw rules. If you use BrickHouse to configure ipfw (highly recommended) you will see that many (Windows-related) attacks are directed at non-privileged ports, and BrickHouse offers a number of rules to close those ports. For these rules to work, they need to be ahead of the "allow" rules for all non-privileged ports.
