    Unhappy no driver for security type 'bsdtcp'

    Dear all

    It's my first time to install Amanda, and i follow the link that Setting-Up Amanda Community in About 15 Minutes, with two machine

    1st on is for amanda server running OS fedora 10 with amanda 2.6.0p2
    and second is the client running Centos 5.2 and amanda-client 2.5

    the problem is when i run check command from amandabackup user,
    amandabackup @amanda$ amcheck DailySet1

    it gives me the following error
    ########################
    Amanda Backup Client Hosts Check
    --------------------------------
    WARNING: mailtest.saudi.net.sa: selfcheck request failed: tcpm_recv_token: invalid size: amandad: no driver for security type 'bsdtcp'

    Client check: 1 host checked in 0.058 seconds. 1 problem found.

    (brought to you by Amanda 2.6.0p2)
    #########################

    i configured everything as per the file for Setting-Up Amanda Community and also the i added {auth=bsdtcp} in /etc/xinetd.d/amanda
    for server and client, and for comp-user-tar in /etc/amanda/template.d/dumptypes i added auth "bsdtcp"

    so what is the problem with the authentication between server and the client


    thanks for care

    The client may not have been built with the bsdtcp authentication mechanism available.

    By the way, please do not "report" or "flag" your posts, as that will cause them to be deleted as spam.

    Default no driver for security type 'bsdtcp'

    i installed amanda client using (yum install amanda-client.i386) so how can i define authentication option (bsdtcp) after installation, cause you told me that i have to define it on the client and which files i have to change to avoid this error

    Thanks for care

    You should install a newer version of Amanda from [url]http://www.zmanda.com/download-amanda.php[/url]. These builds all have bsdtcp installed. The build that yum installs is old and not configured to support bsdtcp.
