 +I installed and configured BackupPC as noted, including using the startup file.  I used the option to run BackupPC as user 'backuppc' based on the provided script.  After configuring a host and starting a backup, I was getting errors in the log file about no ping response.  As root I could ping the client.  However, as user backuppc I received the following error:
 +ping: permission denied (are you root?)
 +Non-root users cannot run ping in a standard busybox configuration.  Running the following command will let non root users run the ping successfully.
 +chmod 4755 ./busybox-netutils
