I can't seem to get crashplan to work, says cannot connect to backup engine. I've set the backup engine and crashplan to enable all but still won't work. I even reset app and tried again still no go? Any ideas? Thanks

When WxFC blocks a network activity it shows notification balloon, writes the event to access.log and adds the event to the Events pane.
All of them are pretty descriptive and show what was blocked and the blocking reason.
So tracing the events you can find the over blocking mistakenly made and reconsider the permissions.

Any program can initiate network connections in the name of other application/service. So the application/service has to be enabled enough as well.
Could it be the disabled Bonjour Service is the reason.

Please run CrachPlan again and check the blocked events, if there is something required but blocked you will see the event and then you will be able to reconsider the permissions.
