I'm trying to implement this protocol in Perl and found the documentation to be slightly lacking, perhaps someone could explain authentication and the 'features' command?

I don't know much about the protocol (I'll send Jean-Louis, who does, along), but I'm excited to hear that you're re-implementing this in Perl! However, I notice that you're using 2.5.0p2, which is pretty old. In 2.6.1, there is a significant perl library available ( and I'm workin on an asynchronous IPC library that you may also find useful (see If you're interested in collaborating on this effort, please connect with us on the amanda-hackers mailing list. --Dustin 09:47, 15 April 2009 (PDT)
