I use 4_7. Do you think I should  update to 4_8, or wait for 4_9 ?

/etc/services:
acedb           20114/tcp
nbdb            20117/tcp
madb            20118/tcp

/etc/rpc:
acedb           20114 rpc.gifaceserver
nbdb            20117 rpc.gifaceserver
madb            20118 rpc.gifaceserver

/etc/inetd.conf:
acedb/1 stream  rpc/tcp wait    acedb.U119      /usr/local/bin/rpc.gifaceserver
rpc.gifaceserver /database/acedb 20114 1200:1200:0
nbdb/1  stream  rpc/tcp wait    acedb.U119      /usr/local/bin/rpc.gifaceserver
rpc.gifaceserver /database/Nbdb 20117 1200:1200:0
madb/1  stream  rpc/tcp wait    acedb.U119        /usr/local/bin/rpc.gifaceserver
rpc.gifaceserver /database/madb 20118 1200:1200:0

There is no traces in server.log. My guess is that the server does not start at
all.

I actually get the following message when trying to launch :aceclient
[fc at grun fc]$ aceclient xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx -port 20114
//! cannot establish connection
//! usage: aceclient host [-port number] [-time_out secs] [-access_info]
[-ace_out] [-ace_in] [-f reportfile parameters]

I have WRITE_ACCESS_DIRECTORY /database/Write_access
With the proper permission set up for this directory (tried rwx for all)

I have also READ_ACCESS_DIRECTORY PUBLIC

Thanks for your help!
