How to configure GS/S 6.1.2 through a firewall (blast from the past)
I’m trying to open up a firewall to let through an old app running on an old 6.1.2 GS/S server, and am having a hard time. Note that the server is running on a Windows XP box.
I configured netldi61 thus:
Netldi61 create /a /b /g /p: 11000:11050
And opened up ports 11000 to 11050 in my firewall, yet when I try to connect I get errors like this:
GS Server Error - GbsNetErrConnectionRefused - ["The connection to the Stone Repository monitor was refused:\n" errmsg.netErrConnectionRefused Nonblocking connect(my IP Address,port=53695) failed to complete.]
The Netldi log reads like this, so the port range is in effect:
Summary of netldi parameters:
The host name is "phatboy".
GEMSTONE is: "C:\GemStone61".
System password authorization is permitted.
Clients are not authenticated.
Process creation is permitted through user's HOME directory.
Pool of ports is "11000:11050".
Created processes belong to the account named "SYSTEM".
The default directory for log files is 'C:\users\default\'.
Entering Service Loop
Gslist –x reports this, again indicating the port range should be in effect:
