The Backup Exec Remote Agent for Windows Servers Service did not start.  The application failed to listen on the NDMP TCP/IP port.  Check the network configuration.

Another process is running on the default port that the remote agent is using.

See here how to change it:

These steps given above must be performed on the media server and on each remote machine being backed up !

You can also check with the command: netstat -ano which PID is using port 10000 and view with windows taskmanager (add the PID colum) what process is what PID.

You do not have the publishing information because you install the remote agent manually.  Add in the IP address of the media server to the publishing tab.  See this document
