Cannot find the file 'RCONSOLE.EXE' Part II

Anyone has the solution to my earlier Qn on "Cannot find the file 'RCONSOLE.EXE' i.e

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

Dan...

Between you and the server do you have any routers, layer 3 switches or other devices that might block SPX traffic?

What version of client software are you running?

There is no routers between my WS and the NetWare 4.11 server. I am using 3 stacks of 3Com Superstack II Switching Hubs for all servers and WS connectivity. What is a layer 3 switch ?

If I'm not mistaken, I am using Novell Client 32, August 1996 release.

"Layer 3 switch" is one name for a new category of devices that combine the speed of a switch (traditionally operating at network layer 2) with some of the protocol-specific traffic control functions of a router (layer 3).  For a fuller explanation, try http://www.pcwebopaedia.com/layer_3_switch.htm

Here are three causes of your error message that were recorded in Novell's tech info database from other people's experiences...do any apply to you?

1. The REMOTE.NLM was loaded on the server; however, the RSPX.NLM was not loaded. The customer loaded RSPX.NLM and now an RCONSOLE session could be established with the server.   [Try typing "MODULES R*"  without quotes at the server console to be sure both NLMs are loaded. - Paul]

2. In another case a duplicate network address caused the same errors because replies to the SPX connection requests were sent to the wrong segment and workstations trying to RCONSOLE never heard back from the server.

3. The user needed to replace a bad 'IOP' (lan card) in the NetFrame server.

That's what Novell recorded.  Under 4.11 it's possible to activate RCONSOLE using INETCFG, but I would do the check mentioned above to make sure both modules are loaded, regardless of what INETCFG may tell you!

Take care.

Thanks Paul for the detailed info, cause 1 was the problem. Problem resolved by loading REMOTE.NLM and RSPX.NLM on the server console.
