I want to use IDR on an Win NT Client.
Server is Solaris 8.
Server and Client are Version 34_2.

Since I must backup through a firewall I set up Server and Client to use 
currently configured to allow ALL traffic for testing.

bpclient -client xxxxx -add -use_nr_..... 1 is set, too.

The backup itself works fine. But it seems that after the backup is finished 
the server wants to fetch the IDR Info. And then I see connections on the 
firewall coming from the client to a _RESERVED_ port on the server.

And then I get logentries like
bpbrm/log.122001:15:56:46 [20738] <16> bpbrm handle_backup: collection of 
disaster recovery information failed - cannot connect on socket

And the backup ends with status one. It seems that the server doesn't accept 
these connections since the client is configured for NONRESERVED PORTS. But the 
client shouldn't use lowports anyway;-)

If I configure everything to use RESERVER_PORTS it works pretty fine.

Any suggestions?
