    I backed up all the amanda config files and downloaded the debs for 3.2.3 from the zmanda site.

    One small further clarification ... what is the correct location of the amandahosts file?

    In my Ubuntu 10.04 server it seems to exist at /etc/amandahosts.

    In other documentation, I've seen it...

    Yes, I have that in all three files: amanda, amandaidx, amidxtape. I have restarted xinetd. It still gives me the same error. Apologies for posting the wrong config file earlier -- I've changed...

    Thanks for the pointer. I'm not at the client's office for another week, but I'll try using auth=bsdtcp according to the instructions here:
