    Hi all,

    Just looking at falko howto as a backup solution.... with Backuppc...

    However i had a question... and that is....

    when i nmblookup hostname it give me a host not found type message.. Also
    when i do nmblookup -A x.x.x.x for that server it gives me a not reponding type message...

    what i was wondering is do it i need to open up ports 137,138,139 (Netbios) on the server i need to backup in order for backuppc to locate this server....???

    Also how do i configure the netbios name ??? i just foundout the netbios name is different to hostname...

    Oh yes i might add to this nmap -A -v x.x.x.x works very well and alsi i know the netbios name and the ip address of the server i want to backup. However the debian backup server cannot find the server i want to backup... the server is a static ip and does not use dhcp at all.. nmap finds all the devices and workstation/servers perfectly.

    i have also changed the config.pl options as stated in the howto by falko... ie

    I'm not sure if I had to do this, but I'd try it.

    Installing Samba on the client
    apt-get install samba
    fixed this problem for me.
