I had major problems with Retrospect & Beige G3 with Asante NICs & Asante drivers, even the latest ones. One of the things that Asante tells you to do is to disable the following extensions if you are using their NICs: Apple Enet, DNS Plugin & SLP Plugin. I did this on many of my client machines, and it helped. The main problem was that my backup server was also a Beige G3 running on Asante. This little fix didn't help much, and I continued getting all manner of 519s from all over the network. I finally wound up buying a Farallon NIC for my Server. All problems w/Retrospect disappeared. Even many problems I was having with ASIP 6.3 (random disconnects of clients) disappeared. Weeks later, I found the REAL problem was that a printer on the network was surreptitiously using DHCP to try and claim the same IP address as my ASIP/Retrospect server. Disabling this behavior made everything well again on my network, but it also pointed out that the Farallon NIC/driver was much more resistant to network errors than the Asante. Bottom line: Try Farallon but do get a packet sniffer. -- ---------------------------------------------------------- To subscribe: [EMAIL PROTECTED] To unsubscribe: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Archives: <http://list.working-dogs.com/lists/retro-talk/> For urgent issues, please contact Dantz technical support directly at [EMAIL PROTECTED] or 925.253.3050.
