Sybase Windows Command Line BCP - Driver Call To Connect Two End Points Failed

I've been doing some Sybase stuff on Linux and have bcp in's and out's working great. Here's my working bcp out on linux:

bcp drd02.dbo.APPL_ENVIRONMENT out APPL_ENVIRONMENT.bcp -U sa -P SyAdmin  -n

When trying the same in Windows, I get the following error:

ct_connect(): network packet layer: internal net library error: Net-Lib protocol
 driver call to connect two endpoints failed

Here's a few pertinent details:

I can connect to my server via iSQL GUI. Its shown as Sybase157 0.0.0.0  5000 and my Drd02 database is online and available.

Contents of the c:\sybase\ini\sql.ini  are (I added the drd02 lines):

[Sybase157_XP]
master=NLWNSCK,0.0.0.0,5001
query=NLWNSCK,0.0.0.0,5001
drd02=NLWNSCK,0.0.0.0,5001

[Sybase157]
master=NLWNSCK,0.0.0.0,5000
query=NLWNSCK,0.0.0.0,5000
drd02=NLWNSCK,0.0.0.0,5000

[Sybase157_JSAGENT]
master=NLWNSCK,0.0.0.0,4900
query=NLWNSCK,0.0.0.0,4900



The environment variables are:

%DSQUERY%=Sybase157
%SYBASE%=c:\Sybase


No matter what I try, it's just not connecting. I'd be happy for any help that could be provided.

What about command line isql:

isql -U sa -P SyAdmin -S Sybase157

Also can you try the same with IP address like below?

isql -U sa -P SyAdmin -S 123.123.123.123:5000

Are you using exactly the same command line? If not can you show us your Windows command line?

You might need to try explicitly adding the ASE server name to the bcp command line... I don't put my faith in DSQUERY working correctly...

I tried that:

bcp drd02.dbo.APPL_ENVIRONMENT out APPL_ENVIRONMENT.bcp -U sa -P SyAdmin -S Sybase157 -n

but I get the same result.

Command line environment might be different than GUI environment. Have you tried isql on command line, whether it connects to Sybase157 or not?

yes, I can for example run:
    dbisql -host 123.123.123.123 -port 5000 -c "uid=sa;pwd=thepw"  \delivery\create.sql

(where 123.123.123.123 is the box's ip)

i have never been able to get -S 123.123.12.3:5000 to work with bcp in linux or windows, I think -S is for referring over to interface (linux) and sql.ini (windows).

It depends on your Open Client version. I think OCS 15.5 and later works with IP address (maybe 15.0 as well).

What about command line isql, does it work?

Jay ReddAuthor Commented:
I figured it out. The fact that i could get into isql with the IP address made me think that maybe 0.0.0.0 is somehow not available to Bcp.

I modified c:\sybase\ini\sql.ini with the following:

from:
[Sybase157]
master=NLWNSCK,0.0.0.0,5000
query=NLWNSCK,0.0.0.0,5000
drd02=NLWNSCK,0.0.0.0,5000


to:
[Sybase157]
master=NLWNSCK,123.123.123.123,5000
query=NLWNSCK,0.0.0.0,5000
drd02=NLWNSCK,0.0.0.0,5000

after putting my public IP address of my vm in the sql.ini, bcp was able to speak to it correctly.

I should mention this is just a temporary fix, this will close off sybase_157 from outside traffic i think. you'd need a loopback adaptor or something to do it as a permanent fix.
