I'm running Retrospect on its own box, and our ASIP server is running the
Retrospect client. Works great, though there are a few caveats: Don't set
the backup to highest priority in the Retrospect control panel on the ASIP
server, and if you use Rebound! or similar auto-restart hardware, you'll
want to set the timeout period to at least 15 minutes (mine's at 30) to
ensure that the tickler won't timeout due to the overhead of the backup.
