I haven't tested the backupctl much - and may have broken it! Let me
look into this and get back to you.

Subject: [Box Backup] Win32 Port - bbackupctl issue wit configuration

I am getting the following error when trying to test the Win32 client=20
(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
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
wrong in the config file (or am I specifying the path incorrectly).  I
installed the win32 client in the default location of ("program
backup").  Also, I am running on Windows XP.

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

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