Summary0000455: Connect from File Daemon to Director Daemon
DescriptionNetwork scheme

many File Daemon on the client PC on different networks - many firewall client network - internet - Firewall - LAN of Storage Daemon and Director Daemon

Connecting from Director to File Daemon is impossible because of the need to configure a wide variety of firewalls.

To connect from File Daemon to the Director Daemon and Storage daemon there is no need to configure a firewall. Which is easier in a strictly firewalled environment.

Can be done to the client connects to the director and cached tasks and all options?

I think you are talking about client initiated backups. That is something we
want to eventually implement. The director already has the first code to
detect if a client or a console is connecting to it. The idea is that when
the client connects it gets some restricted console commands that only allow
it to do things with it own data. Biggest problem is the restore process.

Very need backup data. Restore may be manuals configure, connect and etc.
Recovery it is the secondary task.Without a backup, it is not relevant.

Added Client Initiated Connection feature

This feature allows a Client (File Daemon) to open
and keep a connection to the Director.
It identifies himself and do the authentication.
The Director will keep the connection in a waiting pool.
If a job starts that needs access to the client
and a waiting connection to this client exist,
the connection will be used and removed from the pool.
The Client notices that this connection is now used
and opens a additional one connection
(required for multiple simultaneous client commands,
e.g. cancel a running job).

Configuration to enable Client Initiated Connections:
ConnectionFromDirectorToClient = no
ConnectionFromClientToDirector = yes

ConnectionFromDirectorToClient = no
ConnectionFromClientToDirector = yes

The "no" settings are not required, but gurantees that the
network connection will be only opened in the intended direction.

It is possible, to use Director Initiated Connections (default) and
Client Initiated Connection simultaneously. If a waiting connection
exists, it will be used, otherwise the Director tries to connect to the

This patch also implements TCP Keepalive for Windows.
