Error “local error: tls: record overflow”

This message means the connection was corrupted over the network, and eazyBackup aborted the connection.

This can happen because of random network conditions. Retrying the operation should fix the issue.

If the issue keeps happening repeatedly, this message indicates that something is interfering with packets in your network.

  • Failing NIC
  • Bad NIC driver or driver configuration
  • Failing RAM, on either the endpoint machine or any of the intermediate routers
  • Outdated firewall or proxy, performing incorrect SSL interception

For more information, please see the record_overflow section in IETF RFC 5246.
