    Default How to backup a 2.4.5p1 server (from 3.3.3 server)

    Hello,

    Here's my situation: I have a 2.4.5p1 server (Server A)already in place, witch i cannot change, and i also have a new 3.3.3 Server(Server B), with a new tape device.
    I need to backup directories from the Server A with Server B, without changing the Amanda version, but so far i cant.
    It may be because Server B using "amandabackup" as the backup user, and the Server A uses "backup", but the "amcheck" says "Connection refused"
    I know that on the lastest version, i need to create file .amandahosts in /home/amandabackup, with "ServerName amandabackup amdump", but on my old server, i just wont work.

    The debug log says :
    Wed Apr 3 09:48:02 2013: thd-0x2595400: amcheck-clients: connect_portrange: Connect from 0.0.0.0:516 failed: Connection refused
    Wed Apr 3 09:48:02 2013: thd-0x2595400: amcheck-clients: connect_portrange: connect to 192.168.1.250:10080 failed: Connection refused
    Wed Apr 3 09:48:02 2013: thd-0x2595400: amcheck-clients: stream_client: Could not bind to port in range 512-1023.
    Wed Apr 3 09:48:02 2013: thd-0x2595400: amcheck-clients: security_seterror(handle=0x25decf0, driver=0x7f55c76289a0 (BSDTCP) error=Connection refused)
    So, is it possible for a machine to be server and client as the same time? If yes, how come this wont work?

    Default

    amanda 3.3.3 use the 'bsdtcp' auth by default which is not available in 2.4.5

    set the auth dumptype option to "bsd"
