I’m facing a strange problem with one of my linux clients.
On startup the client sends back wrong name. Actually it sends back names of other valid Windows clients I have, which causes a total mess(Linux backups go to Windows clients)
What is the process to get/send back client name on a Linux client (Debian 9.8)?
The client log file shows:
2019-05-30 09:05:14: Started UrBackupClient Backend…
2019-05-30 09:05:14: FileSrv: Binding UDP socket at port 35622…

I have the same problem. The server does not find the linux client (Ubuntu 20.04 arm64).
When i open all the ports on the firewall, the client detects the server, but the server never sees the client.
Server is on Windows, the client is a completely separate physical server on the same home subnet.
I dont know how you manage the log, but my log does not contain servername, it contains only errors. (cannot do shadow copy, cannot open files). No network errors whatsoever.
When i manually start backup from the client, i do not see this client on the server. But at the same time, i see on the server web console a backup started for my Windows workstation. In fact, this backup is NOT from Windows, it is from Linux, but the server puts this backup on Windows account.
Later i can go and find my linux files in this Windows backup.
This urbackup system does not work with Linux clients.
More: when it somehow manually partially does, it does not create a new client, it puts everything into 1 existing client (list of backups).
Hostnames and ip addresses are of course different, there is no NAT. And my Linux client is still listed as Online=no, still in the process of discovery, it is not in the list of normal clients.
Looks like this software is not for Linux.
