currently I am unable to reproduce it, but the result was the folder and 
tar file for boxbackup-0.09-backup-client-Linux would not be made in the 
parcels folder and there would be a libSSSL.o error 2 (i think when trying 
to enter/exit the client folder)

from a client in windows or linux, using ip or hostname
>telnet 2201
Connecting To not open connection to the host, on port 
 Connect failed

i wonder if my iptables config is correct:
-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state --state NEW -m udp -p udp --dport 2201 -j 
-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 2201 -j 

thanks in advance,
