Client shows connected but server does not?

Hi all,

Just setup a server running on FreeNAS and want to have clients backup over the internet to it.

Tested it on a local network, and everything was happy.

Trying over the internet however produces this strange bug, where the client is says its connected to the server.
But the server itself says the client isn’t, and I’m unable to initialize any backups to actually test it.

Clients can all access the web interface, so no connection issues there.
I’m also running this on Mac clients, if that makes a difference.

Any help would be much appreciated!


Have you forwarded the correct ports to the server? Are you running a firewall on the server?

Hi Glen,

Looks like we fixed it. It takes about 2 minutes or so to connect so it’s
just us being impatient IT guys!
