I have installed the server and clients version 2.5.0p2 on Fedora Core 6. I am currently trying to backup/debug a single machine, the home server, which has a firewall, amanda server and the client. I have followed the Quick install instructions on this site; After the installation, amcheck returns the following error. As I can see, it is binding to a different port all the time -- in this case 591. I followed the instructions on the zmanda site, and adjusted iptables accordingly, and then some more adjustments that I could find on the web. I am including some relavant information below, Please let me know what else is required to troubleshoot.

WARNING: myserver: selfcheck request failed: timeout waiting for ACK
Client check: 1 host checked in 30.009 seconds, 1 problem found
