A quick search of this board didn't turn up any answers to my issue, so I'll ask it here.
When configuring Agent for Windows to connect to my Backup and Replication server, so I can backup to my configured repository, I receive an error when the backup tries to run and fails.
"Error: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond 192.168.10.8:2502"
The IP address in the error is the internal IP of my repository, which I use for all other backups made through my B&R server. However I suspect that that is the disconnect - I'm backing up from a remote host which is my web server. Perhaps I've missed configuring something about my repository, although I'm having no trouble with the initial connection to the B&R server from the remote host. I'm hoping that the remote host can use the B&R server as proxy to the repository; but perhaps the repository needs to be publicly accessible in a direct way?
Just to cover some questions I think would come up...
- my B&R server is version 9.5 update 1 - my B&R server can be reached by the Agent running on the remote host: I opened port 10001 and the logs in the Agent and in the B&R server show them communicating when the backup starts - I've also opened ports 2500-5000 to the B&R server; I've read that they are used for the data transfer and one of them always shows up in the error message
