I was trying to connect to the new SampleApp rpd on a remote machine and got this error nqserror 12008 unable to connect to port 9703. The error says it all, port 9703 is blocked. First I killed the firewall on the linux VM (yep, the security guy will beat me up tonight )
Open a terminal, make yourself root > SU
next kill the firewall:
- Stop the ipchains service. > # service ipchains stop
- Stop the iptables service. > # service iptables stop
- Stop the ipchains service from starting when you restart the server. > # chkconfig ipchains off
- Stop the iptables service from starting when you restart the server. > # chkconfig iptables off
On all router in between I checked that port 9703 was open.
Now I could make a ODBC for my windows 7 machine to the sample app.
Till Next Time
