I am having a very unusuall problem. The windows machine is running Win2k RC2 and Retrospect Server 5. The client is a PowerBook G3 running OS9. When configuring the server it sees the IP address of the Macintosh Client. In the add function the server requests the password of the client but refuses to take the one that I entered when installing the Mac client. Tried this five times including reinstalling the Mac Client. No luck. Is there some compatibility issue between Windows 2000 running Retrospect 5 and OS9?

I have no problems in the exact scenario. I have a Mac with Mac OS 9, and Retrospect 4.2 client. A Windows 2000 Server (GM), using Retrospect 5, and have had no problems. Make sure to forget the client from the database, reinstall it.

Reinstalling the client can be tricky. It will remember the client password unless you first, delete the control panel, reboot, reinstall the control panel and reboot again. Then all should be well. It should be asking you for a password at installation. Make sure the notorious CAPSLOCK is not down when entering the password on install, nor when entering the password when attempting to connect at the server.
