Windows 2003 Port 9898 - Tripwire

Posted on 2011-04-25

I installed Tripwire on 10 servers using Windows 2003, SP2. 6 work and 4 do not. The application uses port 9898  to communicate with the primary server. I get an error stating: "Caused by: Connection refused: connect."  I checked the network firewall and it is allowing this port.The local firewall on the servers are turned off. I try to telnet to the server using 9898 with no success. Could something else be blocking these ports?

    It really sounds like the firewall or router is blocking it.

    I would definitely double check the network firewall and routers to see if the port is open between the client servers and the primary.

    Good luck!

    The firewall was checked but the conclusion from the team was that it is open to traffic.

    Ended up being an Application problem in a config file.
