Lost connection between laptop and server, firewall inaccessible RRS feed

  • Question

  • Running W7 on laptop and host computer w/ home network w/ WPA/WPA2.  With no deliberate changes, home server quit backing up laptop.  Digging down in server settings, error message says "The network connection between the computer and server was lost. Connection marked dead by transport."  Going through the tool document, I do not seem to have a certificate problem.  Can ping the server.  Reinstalled Connector software (sucessfully) but still won't back up.  Installed Norton Antivirus weeks ago with no hitch.  This problem started in the last 72 hours.  The tool tells me about firewall settings, but not hoew to access them in the Server.  Really need help!

  • If other computers are backing up to your server successfully, it's not a problem with your server. You say "with no deliberate changes", but I presume something about your network or your laptop changed at about the same time. That would be the logical place to start looking.
