That will be on the DB2 server, its the TCP ports that it is listening on.

Hi OST-IS,

Most of the DB2 parameters that you'll care about can be found with these two commands:

db2>  get dbm cfg
db2>  get db cfg

In this case, the parameter that you want is returned by the first command.  It will look something like this:

 TCP/IP Service name                          (SVCENAME) = db2c_DB2

The value will be the port number as is defined in the etc/services file, or the absolute port number.

Until you get the DB2 command line processor set up on your desktop, that will have to be run on the server side.


Good Luck,
Kent
