Don't know if this is the same problem you are having.

Q: I am getting error 8522 "Failed to receive data from client agent" and my backups are timing out. Is this a winsock error? Seems to be a communication problem. How do I fix this?

A: Yes, it is a winsock error.. If you look at your ntagent.log on the client machine you will probably see winsock errors. 2 things to do to try to fix this are to make sure you have the latest version of the NT agent; and within the Ntagent Admin you should check off the Specify IP address checkbox and type in that client machine's IP address. (you must stop/start the NT agent service after doing this)

Hi there,
   Thanks for giving me so much help. I have found out the root of the problem is because the 'client service for Arcserve' was not able to start on the problem machine. I have reinstall the client service for Arcserve and now it is working properly.

    Thanks a lot.
