I am getting the following error when trying to test the Win32 client 
(posted by Nick Knight) version 0.8f.

I have:
  - installed the server on a Linux box and have Linux clients backing up to it
  - installed the client on Win32
  - can query the server with "bbackupquery -c bbackupd.conf"
  - can run the daemon "bbackupd -c bbackupd.conf"

When I run the client [bbackupctl -c bbackupd.conf] I get the following error:
C:\Program Files\Box Backup>bbackupctl -c bbackupd.conf synch
Using configuration file
Exception: Common (1/2)

I'm probably doing something very simple wrong.  I just don't see what is 
wrong in the config file (or am I specifying the path incorrectly).  I have 
installed the win32 client in the default location of ("program files\box 
backup").  Also, I am running on Windows XP.

As a note, when I look in the PID directory below there is not a file named 
bbackupd.pid.  Could that be the issue?

Thanks in advance and I've included my config file below,

StoreHostname = bacchus.itsolut.com
AccountNumber = 0x75ab23c

too large and want

# Use this to temporarily stop bbackupd from syncronising or connecting to 
the store.
# This specifies a program or script script which is run just before each 
sync, and ideally
# the full path to the interpreter. It will be run as the same user 
bbackupd is running as,
# usually root.
# The script prints either "now" or a number to STDOUT (and a terminating 
newline, no quotes).
# If the result was "now", then the sync will happen. If it's a number, 
then the script will
# be asked again in that number of seconds.
# For example, you could use this on a laptop to only backup when on a 
specific network.

# BackupLocations specifies which locations on disc should be backed up. Each
# directory is in the format
# 	name
# 	{
# 		Path = /path/of/directory
# 		(optional exclude directives)
# 	}
# 'name' is derived from the Path by the config script, but should merely be
# unique.
# The exclude directives are of the form
# 	[Exclude|AlwaysInclude][File|Dir][|sRegex] = regex or full pathname
# (The regex suffix is shown as 'sRegex' to make File or Dir plural)
# For example:
# 	ExcludeDir = /home/guest-user
# 	ExcludeFilesRegex = *.(mp3|MP3)$
# 	AlwaysIncludeFile = /home/username/veryimportant.mp3
# This excludes the directory /home/guest-user from the backup along with 
all mp3
# files, except one MP3 file in particular.
# In general, Exclude excludes a file or directory, unless the directory is
# explicitly mentioned in a AlwaysInclude directive.
# If a directive ends in Regex, then it is a regular expression rather than a
# explicit full pathname. See
# 	man 7 re_format
# for the regex syntax on your platform.
