I am trying to configure a client to back up through the firewall. I am running 7.4.1 on the server and on the client. Both are Windows 2003 SP1.
The firewall guys have opened 7937-7941 ports on the firewall.
When I try to configure the port range through local hosts I am getting "failed on UDP ping".
Also when running nsrports -s "servername" on the client I am getting : "nsrports: RAP error: Service not available."
All hosts files are correctly populated with short and FQDN with correct IPs on both server and client.
If I run ping and ping -a, both ways, I am getting successful name resolution. When trying to run save -vvv from the client to the server I am getting the following errors:
39076:save: RPC warning: RPC cannot make a procedure call: Create failed: 352:Remote system error - Connection refused
When running rpcinfo -p from the client to the server I am getting the following: C:\Documents and Settings\administrator.EXTRANET>rpcinfo -p 10.0.0.60 rpcinfo: can't contact lgtomapper: rpcinfo: 344:RPC receive operation failed. network connection could not be established with the host.; errno = Connection reset by peer
I tried what you suggested and here is the outcome:
C:\Documents and Settings\administrator.EXTRANET>echo p | nsradmin -p 390113 -i - -s 10.0.0.60 39078:nsradmin: RPC error: RPC receive operation failed. A network connection c ould not be established with the host.
There does not appear to be a NetWorker nsrexecd server running on 10.0.0.60.
I have checked and the RPC service is started on both machines.
It means you can't connect via RPC to nsrexeced port (ONC 390113). That does seem to be blocked (or maybe whole RPC protocol might be blocked). Can you confirm 7937 and 7938 ports are open for communication?
