Bacula backups hang on volume for over WAN clients

I can backup local clients but when I try to backup through the wan I get

31-Jul 22:43 bacula-dir JobId 35: No prior Full backup Job record found.
31-Jul 22:43 bacula-dir JobId 35: No prior or suitable Full backup found in catalog. Doing FULL backup.
31-Jul 22:43 bacula-dir JobId 35: Start Backup JobId 35, Job=Linux3.2014-07-31_22.43.37_48
31-Jul 22:43 bacula-dir JobId 35: Using Device "ITBstore"

And it just sits there until I bounce the bacula-fd service on the client (system im trying to backup)




But any local jobs I run work and get messages like so
2014-07-31 21:33:42      bacula-dir JobId 31: Start Backup JobId 31, Job=jm-Linux.2014-07-31_21.33.40_43
2014-07-31 21:33:42      bacula-dir JobId 31: Using Device "ITBstore"
2014-07-31 21:33:43      bacula-sd JobId 31: Volume "Default0002" previously written, moving to end of data.
2014-07-31 21:33:43      bacula-sd JobId 31: Ready to append to end of Volume "Default0002" size=5267879
2014-07-31 21:33:43      bacula-sd JobId 31: Job write elapsed time = 00:00:01, Transfer rate = 715.4 K Bytes/second

And they continue on to complete

I took a quick look at the manual and can't tell if Bacula can use an ip address for the destination; but, you definitely need to forward ports 9101-9103 in your router: http://www.bacula.org/5.0.x-manuals/en/problems/problems/Dealing_with_Firewalls.html

I have them all forwarded on my local pfsense router to the correct system and on the iptables I have the following

-A INPUT -p tcp -m state --state NEW -m tcp --dport 9101 -j ACCEPT
-A INPUT -p tcp -m state --state NEW -m tcp --dport 9102 -j ACCEPT
-A INPUT -p tcp -m state --state NEW -m tcp --dport 9103 -j ACCEPT

Unless Bacula will let you set the WAN ip of your backup system as the destination, you need to add an entry to the HOSTS file on the clients PC(s) so they can find you.
You can test with PING <yourbackuppcname> in a CMD window.
