How to configure NDMP on both NetApp FAS3140 and Symantec Backup Exec version 12.5?

1. We recently purchased a NetApp FAS3140, it is connected to our network by Ethernet.
2. We have a Windows server 2003 with Syamntec BackupExec 12.5, a LTO4 tape library is directly connected to this backup server via SCSI cable.
3. I enabled NDMP on NetApp and installed NDMP option on Backupexec 12.5
My questions are:
How to configure NDMP on the Backup Exec 12.5 server to back up the data on the NetApp FAS3140 to the LTO4 tape library?
We failed to add the NDMP server to the Backup Exec server. Here is the error message ---  Unable to validate the NDMP server at this time. Do you still want to add it?  If I click Yes and continue, I receive another error, saying  failed to access 10..11.0.150 the directory or file was not found, or could not be accessed.
Please help.

The way I add NDMP Servers is tools -> NDMP Devices->

Add an account with your root username and password.  This should allow you to add a NDMP Server to Backup Exec.  
silly question:

Did you turn on the ndmpd deamon on the netapp?

type:  ndmpd status

If the status is off turn on by

ndmpd on
