Re: Tarsnap connection lost, not sure how to debug

Realised I did not answer your questions -- I am running this from a cloud server on DigitalOcean's network. A similar server on DO's network functions without issue. Networking-wise there are two adapters, eth0 and eth1, which connects to the internal network. This might've been added after tarsnap was set up... Perhaps that could be significant?

# ls -l .tarsnap-cache
total 0
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 Feb 21 12:26 lockf
# ls -ld .tarsnap-cache
drwx------ 2 root root 4096 Feb 21 12:26 .tarsnap-cache

Hi Graham/Colin -- I did see that page before and ran through the items. No problems pinging or connecting via telnet, and a different server configured the same way (at roughly the same time, give or take a couple days) connects just fine. Thought maybe ufw was getting in the way, so I punched a hole for requests to tarsnap's IP (no effect), and disabled it outright (also no effect).

I'm seeing no obvious permission errors (I'm actually running as root), and I had also tried defining a new cache directory, which also didn't make any difference.

If you want to nuke *all* of your archives, you don't need to run --fsck.
You only need to have a synchronized cache directory for creating new
archives or deleting *individual* archives (since that's how tarsnap
figures out which blocks are no longer needed -- not an issue if you ask
to delete everything).
