How do I open a specific IP port (120) on netware 5.00g

Hi,
I'm running netware 5.00g and Arcserve 7.
There is a conflict between ARCserve and Netware NFS that is documented on the Novell website (TID-10065725)
The conflict involves the sunRPC, which uses TCP port 111, and is active in both these apps.  In order to make them both work, I am switching the port used by ARCserve to TCP 120 (currently unused).
I modified my ASCONFIG.ini file and made this change:
NLM8=SYS:\ARCSERVE\NLM\CATIRPC -ipport=120 -d

I also modified the registry on the client computer (which I'm accessing the server from) to reflect this change.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ComputerAssociates\ARCserveIT\Base

I created a new key AlternateRPCPorts
and gave it a DWORD value of 120 (in decimal)

I rebooted both the server and the client and I still cannot connect to ARCserve on the server..When I run a port scan port 120 is not open.  How do I open it?

Also there is no firewall in between the client and the server..

Thanks

    Hmmm.....

    OK, at the NetWare console prompt, enter --> TCPCON

    Select Protocol Information - TCP - TCP Connections

    Is Port 120 listed in the TCP Connections Table?

    If not, then you have confirmed that it is not bound.

    Have you tried adding those command-line paramters (-ipport=120 -d) to the LOAD statement in AUTOEXEC.NCF (or wherever the ARCServe NLM is loaded)?

    OK,
    I checked TCPCON and port 120 is not listed, so I guess this would confirm that it is unbound..

    I also checked my autoexec.ncf file and interestingly , I found 2 different ones: one dated Sept. 28, 2004 in F:\system and one from 3 years earlier in F:\system\ghc (ghc is my server name).

    I would assume that the newer file is correct, we had a network crash here because of a NIC failure and the old file contains references to the old NIC.

    The autoexec file didn't contain a load statement for ARCserve...I am not sure where it is being loaded from, how can I find this out?

    Can I just bind port 120 in Novell somehow so it opens?

    I have included my autoexec.ncf file in case it is needed...

    Also I am now using a 3com 3c905 NIC and the netwook is running properly with it..

    Since you are in a mixed IP/IPX environment, try the SPX enabling variant of CATIRPC in your ASTART6 launch file.

    NLM8=SYS:\ARCSERVE\NLM\CATIRPC -ipport=120 -tispxport=36915 -d

    Well, we don't KNOW what his protocol environment is. We can see what was commented out of the AUTOEXEC.NCF by INETCFG, but that doesn't tell us what INETCFG has in it NOW.

    georgehullcentre, it looks like your AUTOEXEC.NCF could stand a little cleaning. Might also be a good time to document it. I didn't think NetWare v5 would need REGISTER MEMORY.

    I think that ARCServe is loaded by the "ASTART" command. That probably refers to an NCF file, probably SYS:SYSTEM\ASTART.NCF.

    OK,

    My protocol environment is ip only, static ip to be specific, we just left the ipx bindings in case something, somewhere needed them.

    I did try setting the ipx addy originally to no avail..
    I agree with the cleaning, this entire system needs documentaion as well, that is an ongoing project here..

    So I checked the ASTART, it is short and follows here:
    Search Add SYS:\ARCSERVE\NLM
    Search Add SYS:\ARCSERVE\UTILITY
    LOAD SYS:\ARCSERVE\NLM\CSLOADER @SYS:\ARCSERVE\ASCONFIG.INI SECTION=LOADER

    it points to the ARCSERVE\ASCONFIG.ini, spx is disabled in this file, but the port is set explicitly to ip and ipx anyway, I've included it here:
    I hope this helps!  note this is not the same ASCONFIG.ini that I modified, that one was located in SYS:\ASCONFIG.ini...

    Do you have the server in your client HOSTS file, and your client PC in the server's HOSTS file?

    This is one of the biggest problems working with ARCserve 7 - it is not very IP-friendly.  

    I do believe that AS7 also does require IPX to be bound, even if you don't use it, IIRC, but I don't think that has anything to do with your problem.

    Do you have all of the latest AS7 patches applied on both client and server?  That is also very important trying to make the AS7 ARCserve Manager work over IP.

    OK,
    yes the server is in the hosts file, and since ARCserve is running on netware I don't believe it uses a hosts file, but the server is in it anyway.
    IPX is bound even tho we don't use it.
    As far as the patches go, I was able to download some, but now the CA website is reporting errors and I can't download anymore...
    I added an IP addy to my windows computer, the netware one has more than one, this new addy 206.47.3.70 on the server and 206.47.3.5 on my windows computer allows me to get much farther in the restore process, but in the end, I am still back to server not found.
    This is the same problem documented on the novell website and referenced above, so I am back to my original question, how do I open an IP port in Novell?  Or how do I bind a specific port to ARCserve or TCP/IP?
    The sunRPC is using port 111 for 2 different applications, ARCserve and Novell NFS.  Can I sinply unload the NFS?  would this cause problems with NOVELL?  What exactly is the NFS?
    The files that need to be restored are for accounting and they will need to produce more cheques for this account soon, so I am upping the point value, If anyone can help me that would be great!

    Thanks!

    NFS = Network File Service - a file-sharing protocol developed in the UNIX world. NetWare supports it, as DSPoole noted, thru NFAP.

    You already have the port change made in ASCONFIG.INI and said you've made the registry change, so all I can think of is that the server's IP and name needs to be in the PC's HOSTS file, and the PC's IP and name needs to be in the server's HOSTS file.  Beyond that, there's the required patches.  Since CA dropped support for version 7, it may be hard to find them now.  Maybe some freindly techie with an FTP server full of old patches exists somewhere...

    Did you say the server has more than one NIC/address?  I vaguely recall something about AS7 having problems with multiple addresses.  Can you disable one, at least until you get this working and the files restored?

    How about this, would it be dangerous to unload the NFS, or prevent its loading at startup?  I don't use Unix or Linux and won't be for the foreseeable future?
    Any thoughts on this?

    No, there is no danger in turning off NFS. Comment out "NFSSTART" from your AUTOEXEC.NCF.

    Think of NFS (and CIFS and AFP) as *additional* services that the NetWare environment can offer. They're optional.

    ok,
    I got a cool update for you guys today...
    I was able to get in and connect with the ARCserve server (but my restore is failing) this is how I did it:

    added this key to the registry

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ComputerAssociates\ARCserveIT\Base\ASMgr\ConnectUsingSPX as a DWORD value and set it to 1.

    In my novell client properties, protocol preferences, under IP naming, only 'hosts' is selected.

    In ARCserve Ip address 206.47.3.70 is the default server (shows up in the bottom bar)
    192.168.1.3 is the selected server (in the top drop down box)

    With these settings I was able to get right in *no problem* but my restore job shows up as failed..

    If *any* of these steps was not done, I could not connect to the server..I am including part of the ASRpc log file, with 2 entries, so that you can have a look:
    I notice in the 2nd entry it says : "****No common protocol can be detected as installed on the Server GHC and this workstation."  I think this may be the crux of the problem...Lemme know if there are any more log files that you need to see..

    What I did to fix AS7:

    1) The registry fix you mentioned, for the RPC port

    2) Add the backup server to the manager PC C:\Windows\System32\DRIVERS\ETC\HOSTS file, in the format:
    xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx <tab>  (server name) (server.dns.name)

    (ex:  10.20.30.40           myserver  myserver.mydomain.com)

    3)  Add the manager PC to the NetWare backup server's SYS:\Etc\Hosts file, using the same format as in step 2.

    (ex.  10.20.30.100          mycompname  mycompname.mydomain.com)

    where  "mycompname" is the "full computer name" displayed in "my computer", Properties page.

    I don't know if you did that, exactly, but those three things in combination with current (as of whenever it was) patches, worked for me.
