pervasive 2000 client + tcp/ip

hello world,

I'm having a strange problem setting up naas (auditing) on a netware 6 server with TCP/IP and IPX installed.

The problem is on the client side. One of the first steps of the Pervasive SQL 2000i installation wizard "Pervasive System Analyzer"; on this step you can test network communications over TCP/IP, NETBIOS and IPX.

And so, the test works fine if I use IPX; if I try TCP/IP, I get the following error message:

"The server you chose appears to have the SPX and TCP/IP protocol(s) but the network address returned does not look like a valid address.
 
Also verify that Pervasive.SQL is started on the server."

Pervasive SQL has been started on the server, so the whole thing is about that "returned network address that doesn't look valid".

Any idea? thanks in advance, Xavier Serra, IBV

the client is running windows 2000 pro SP2
yes, I'm using DHCP on the client. I tried running the tests using static IP assignment and got the same error.

yes, I'm on this thread; I am sibemollbe.

I have solved the issue with the pervasive client. I only had to add my server's name to my hosts file.

That was easy but, still from ConsoleOne, when trying to setup the database, I get: "Could not connect to the database" error.

I have followed novell's support TID 10067500 step by step, so I don't know what's wrong now, and even more, can't imagine any new test to see what's wrong.

I know it's also a netware question, but I can't help that.

thanks anyway, Xavier
