45527: Acronis True Image: Troubleshooting Network Connection Issues

    Network connectivity problem can take place if any antivirus is working on source or/and target computers. Beside that, the antivirus software may have its own firewall that can block the traffic even if real-time shields are stopped.

    If you have any problem with network connection (e.g. you are not able to back up onto NAS or any other network share), follow these steps.

    • First of all, try to use ping command to check if the network share is reachable: Go to Start -> cmd -> type ping XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX (where "XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX" - IP address of the target). For more information, see http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb490968.aspx

    • If Antivirus is installed, make sure that the antivirus shields are disabled. Also, all Acronis-related files and source/target  IP addresses should be added in the exclusion list of the antivirus/firewall. How to add them to the exception list on the most common antivirus software, see below:
