Problem Description
When I try to run a backup to a remote tape drive, I get the message: "Flushing Network Buffers! ..." between volumes. The system then hangs.

Most likely Double Buffering is turned on. Double Buffering is not meant to be used with network backups. The problem lies in the fact that 64 k of data is being sent through an 8 k pipe, thus causing a bottleneck.

Turn off Double Buffering from the menu or eliminate the 'S' option from the command line.
