Very frustrating.  More frustrating that the tools are limited to
diagnoses.  The below logs excerpts were sent back from NB support
indicating where the failure is occurring, during
et_type_of_client_port: db_getCLIENT().

I agree with the diagnosis, however, nslookup, blclntcmd, host file
entries all check out.  Any suggestions would be appreciated

Master/Media Server: W2/SP2
Client: Target NW


(The request dameon sets up a connection from host,, on reserved port 698.)

(NetBackup does a security check to see if the host is a valid server
and fails completely.)
