At first, add the repository containing Network Agent to a list of eligible repositories on your Linux:
Add this key to the apt utility with a command:
sudo apt-key add hb.pub
For Ubuntu 14.04, add the next string to the end of the file /etc/apt/sources.list:
deb http://packages.handybackup.net/trusty trusty main
For Ubuntu 16.04:
deb http://packages.handybackup.net/xenial xenial main
Then execute the next command:
sudo apt-get update
Finally, install a copy of the Network Agent using the next command:
sudo apt-get install hb-ws
Next, configure your Linux Network Agent. The default location for all configuration and options files is the ~/.hb7 directory.
Open the configuration file ~/.hb7/Settings/Services/workstation.hbl. Then, in the field coordinator_host you must write a name of a computer with the operating Management Panel, a main server for Handy Backup network editions.
Note: The configuration file is a common XML file. You can modify it by any text editor such as vi or emacs. Check also that you have rights to modify this file.
After modifying the file, restart the workstation using the following command:
sudo service hbworkstation restart
Caveat: The current version of the Linux Network Agent has a proof-test only for Ubuntu 14.04/16.04 but can work with an equal efficiency on any Debian-based distro. Still, if you have troubles with installation or just want to add your favorite distro to a list of fully supported system, please contact us at email:firstname.lastname@example.org
