Greetings,

I am not able to run remote console from nwadmin. It prompted:

Cannot find the file 'RCONSOLE.EXE". Make sure that the file exists on your system and that the path and filename are correct.

As checked with the windows explorer, there is already a Y search drive to the public directory which contains console.exe.

Pls advise on the above resolution.

TIA

In you question you said that there is a Y search drive to the public directory which contains CONSOLE.EXE - did you mean to type Rconsole.exe?

Yes, rconsole.exe not console.exe, a typo error.

NWAdmin invokes rconsole.exe via a pif file called nwrcon.pif. Nwrcon.pif resides normaly in the same directory as your NWAdmin. The pif file can contain volume and path to define location of rconsole.exe.

Check if nwrcon.pif exists at expected place and contains valid values.

Path the y:\win95\rconsole.exe in the nwrcon.pif.

Copied IBM_RUN.OVL from login directory to Y:\WIN95 directory which contains nwrcon.pif and nwadmn95.exe when an error occurred   about not having "IBM_RUN.OVL" during execution of RCONSOLE from NWADMIN.

Able to run rconsole but could not see any server after selecting SPX as the protocol. When tried to select by IPX internal network number which I know from the server startup file, error msg prompted:

RCONSOLE-4.10-113: The server connection was terminated by AllocateConnection. Press <ENTER> to continue.

Pls advise on the above resolution.

TIA
