About client search server / UDP broadcast datagram


#1

Hi.

Please tell, i correct understanding that urbackup-cli send broadcast UDP message only once - after installing when searched urbackup-srv?
After this all communication between urbackup-cli and urbackup-srv carried out by unicast TCP packages?

i think udp broadcast is like every 2-5 minutes. to discover new clients.

You are right.
srv sends UDP datagram (not cli how i think).

(it’s explained in official documentation - https://www.urbackup.org/administration_manual.html#x1-260005).

Thanks and sorry for my question.
