I have a number of machines (mix of i386 and amd64) reporting to amd64 
servers, all running 4.2.0 on debian. They have previously run 4.1.0 and 
3.11.something without issues. So I can confirm that it works. One easy 
mistake to make is to misconfigure collectd.conf such that the "<Plugin 
network>...</network>" section is included but no "LoadPlugin network" 
line. You'll know because collectd will warn you that the "network 
plugin failed to register a callback" or something to that effect. 
(assuming the syslog plugin is correctly configured).

I'd use netstat on the server to verify that it's listening, tcpdump on 
the client to make sure it's talking, and it both show success then its 
probably a routing or netfilter problem somewhere in between.
