BRU server needs ports 14441  to 14450 open!
SteveNetwork Manager
Yep... BRU is great backup software, but yes, you need to have TCP ports 14441 -> 14450 open on the client side for communication to work..

the only other thing that will bring up that error is if you have restarted your BRU Server deamon, and tried to connect to the client straight away.. it can take up to 90secs for the deamon to connect to all the machines configured on the server and reopen the sockets..

authenticated from windows to bru server to resolve connection refused error for windows clients
