7.6 Client on Vista - Cannot Connect


Recommended Posts

I began to experience a random connection failure on one of my vista laptops (Home Pro) in v7.5. Some nights it would connect, and others it would not. For the past 4 nights, no connection.


Troubleshooting it - I went to the Server (XP Home, v7.5), hit "Clients" and tried to view the client - I could "see" the client on the network, but it would not connect. Tried to delete and re-add. It added it, but would not connect. I could "Test" it at the ip address, and Server would see it, but would not connect.



Then I went to the laptop, pulled up the v7.5 client, checked the version, downloaded 7.6 client, upgraded it - no connection.


I then upgraded the 7.5 Server to 7.6, uninstalled the 7.5 client on the laptop, re installed it, and now the client is not seen on the Server, and the client is inactive (greyed out).


What am I doing stupid here? I have 1 other vista laptop that is running fine, and 1 other XP client that is running fine - similar backup scripts each night.
