That's right, there are timeout messages and retry attempts.

And that's the point where i have to say no... i was really seeing
every of the four mentioned save sets, that were listed in the gui,
saving data and increasing the amount of saved data.
That's why i'm so confused...

Hmmm, the host mentioned is behind a firewall, and nearly every
system has two NICs, one for the external and one in the backup-only
network. But everything seems fine. The backup server is granted
full access to the client (permit any from backupserver_ip to
client), and they are communicating just fine in all other things
(ssh, http, ftp, ...).

With kind regards,
