Amanda looses connection to certain Ubuntu servers

It seems that from time to time amanda will loose connection to some servers running Ubuntu.

In the daily amanda mail report, there will be lines like:

puffer1000 / lev 0 FAILED [Request to puffer1000 failed: timeout waiting for ACK]

and an amcheck -c on that host will return an error.

This can be cleared by restarting inetd on the affected servers:

sudo service inetd restart
or xinetd on firewall:
sudo service xinetd restart
