Error description

  • Under the 'FastBack Manager and FastBack Server' header in the
    'Software requirements and prerequisites' section of the manual,
    The FastBack Installation and User's Guide currently states:
    
    '(Windows 2008 only) Before installing FastBack Manager on a
     computer with the Microsoft Window 2008 operating system,
     Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) must be disabled. If IPv6 is
     not disabled, a message indicates that the system cannot
     connect to FastBack Manager. For information about how to
     disable IPv6, see the Microsoft Knowledge Base article 929852
     online at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929852.'
    
    This is incorrect and the paragraph should be removed.
