I have a Bacula server on my Linux Debian squeeze host (Bacula version 5.0.2) and a Bacula client on Windows XP SP3.

On my network each client can see each other, can share files and can ping.

On my local server I could run bconsole and the server responds but when I run bconsole or bat on my windows client the server does not respond.

Here are my configuration files:

bacula-dir.conf:

#
# Default Bacula Director Configuration file
#
#  The only thing that MUST be changed is to add one or more
#   file or directory names in the Include directive of the
#   FileSet resource.
#
#  For Bacula release 5.0.2 (28 April 2010) -- debian squeeze/sid
#
#  You might also want to change the default email address
#   from root to your address.  See the "mail" and "operator"
#   directives in the Messages resource.

I have checked my firewall and disabled the firewall but it doesn't work.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

    
You need to wrap the text from the config file, its too jumbled to look at. –  Matthew Ife May 5 '12 at 8:05
    
Can you do the following as debugging procedures: 1) Change the director address to the public address instead of the local address and restart Bacula 2) Run bconsole on your server hosting the Bacula director and execute status <client-name-here> and report the status of these two commands? And yes, wrap text and make sure your configuration file is legible in the preview - if it isn't, then we can't quite read it easily. I'd say that your question requires a bit more debugging effort from your end. Considering that it's been migrated from StackOverflow, you are excused. –  nearora Jun 5 '12 at 5:26

You probably are getting blocked by your firewall.

sudo iptables -A INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 9101 -j ACCEPT
