    I have True Image Server for Windows version 8 (build 937) backing up to a firewire external hard drive attached to a home desktop computer as shown:
    The VPN works fine. From the Server I can browse, copy files to, delete files on the Desktop Firewire HD.

    I can create a weekly scheduled event to do an incremental backup just fine. However when I run the event, after 10 minutes or so I get:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
    <log uuid="0C65274A-43D7-496F-B4C5-9A9E7B945CA7">

    I also have a firewire hard drive attached to the server that does daily backups fine.

    Firewall is turned off on both VPN routers. VPN is created by the routers.

    Hello willgill,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Server Disk Backup Software.

    Please check each partition of your hard drives (including external ones) by Windows utility for both PC that you are imaging and PC where the network share (your firewire hard drive) is located:

    - For Windows 9x please use Windows menu Start\Run
    then enter the command "scandskw" and test all drives;

    - For Windows XP please use Windows menu Start\Run, then enter the command
    "chkdsk c: /r" "chkdsk d: /r" for every partition of your hard drives.

    Please also download the latest version of Acronis drivers, install it with disabled logging and see if the problem still persists.

    If the problem still persists then enable logging by running the installation package once again, reproduce the problem and collect the c:\snapapi.log file.

    Please also create Acronis Report and Windows System Information as it is described in Acronis Help Post.

    Reproduce the problem and collect Acronis True Image Server 8.0 for Windows log, which can be saved from Tools -> Show Log -> Diskette icon.

    Send all the collected files and information to support@acronis.com along with the link to this thread. We will investigate the problem and try to provide you with the solution.

    Thank you.
    Alexey Popov

    UPDATE: So far, I've got it working. The process of doing incremental updates over the VPN takes 4 hours, but it's worked twice now. The difference is that I changed the routers. See the diagram below.
