I am on day two trying to get Deltacopy client to connect to a deltacopy server.  Client = Server 2008 Server = Server 2008 w NO FIREWALL...

I use the default port, but when I do a netstat -a,. I do not see anything listening on TCP 873...

Does Deltacopy client connect into a SSD Daemon?  If so, I use WinSSHD and connect into it fine with Putty.  If this does not, then I give up.  I run the Deltacopy Server with a local authentication account and setup the client as the same..  Please help.

Update - When I sit on the DeltaCopy Server and connect with the DeltaCopy client to the SAME server, I get the same error as above - an error I forgot to post...

Unable to fetch directory names.  rsync: failed to connect to servername:  Connection Refused (111)

Hi!

Check your firewall.

- Ensure any firewall is either disabled or properly configured to allow port 873 traffic from client to server.
- Ensure the server is listening on the target machine
- Check if DeltaCopy service is running on the server. If it is not, start the service from Windows Control Panel

TobiasHolm,

No firewalls blocking, server seems to be listening, but I do not see port 873 listening when I do the netstat -a command, service is running....

ok. Do the service run on your Win2008 server? Some people had problems when installing in Win2008 server, they got "service creation failed".

Why You Should Analyze Threat Actor TTPs

After years of analyzing threat actor behavior, it’s become clear that at any given time there are specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that are particularly prevalent. By analyzing and understanding these TTPs, you can dramatically enhance your security program.

Do you *need* to run it with the DeltaCopy server?  Can you just map the drives through Windows and use the DeltaCopy client to sync the directories?

mccracky - can you expand upon your question?  I prefer to have something that does not require a mapped drive.  I am about to abandon this DeltaCopy application and use CWRYNC and a SSH Deamon - since that works.

if cwRsync works, I'd just use it.

To expand on my comment:
If the "server" part is causing headaches, then you can just use the client side system between "local" directories.  You can just have the remote directory be a "local" one by it being mapped/mounted.

I think that is what I am going to do McCracky.  That is a great name, by the way.  cwRsync seems to have better control while this DeltaCopy has awful results for me...  I still have yet to have anybody confirm is I need the SSH Daemon to run on the server for DeltaCopy.  My Linux admin here says yes, but I think he is wrong.  Can you confirm/deny this?

No, I can't.  But from what it looks like in the docs from this site: http://www.aboutmyip.com/AboutMyXApp/DeltaCopy.jsp.  It almost looks like the server with ssh is only supported if the server side is on Linux.  I'm not sure, but that's a guess from their docs and the FAQ.  

Does the data transfer need to be encrypted?  If not, try it without the ssh in the mix.
