Hello Less Micksell, Thank you for your reply. I use the daemon rsyncd cause the security guy told me that this solution is more secure than using rsync/ssh without password between the machines (backuppc is installed on a real server used for other things, too) When I launch the command

Hi, I unpacked the tar on the backup server itself, which is also the host on which I used firefox to download the tarfile. The only tar I found is version 1.23 (corresponding to the debian/testing tar package 1.23-2.1) However, my primary problem is not tar. The primary problem is that I

[..] Have you tried getting a zip archive from the GUI instead? Or using BackupPC_zipCreate on the CLI? No, sorry, I've not tried zip yet. I'll first try to understand why things work on one but not the other system. I've by found a windows XP host who friendly accepts the restores sent to

[..] I think it does the basic permissions that map to unix equivalents. It doesn't preserve acls, nor does it have any way to work around the existing ones - so you may have files that you can read in the backups but can't write back over the existing copy Right. There might be files

Another question: The script, running with -c, failed eventually at this line: my $err = $bpc-ServerConnect($Conf{ServerHost}, $Conf{ServerPort}); My serverport is set to -1; does it need to be set for this to work? Could you not just call BackupPC_ServerMesg instead? Perhaps I should
