Ok, I'm trying to get the sockets server of acedb (4.8c) to run on our
Tru64 UNIX system. I've been following the instructions given on:
Things were going ok, e.g. I could start saceserver in the foreground and
then start saceclient in a separate window and the client could connect to
the server. No problemo. But now I'm trying to get this working via
So I have the following line in /etc/services:
And in /etc/inetd.conf I have:
AGR stream tcp wait keith /usr/local/bin/saceserver
saceserver /databases/cropnet_db/AGR 200:200:0
This is just as is specified in the above web page. I then restart inetd
and then the instructions suggest:
"then access the server by starting up a client:
saceclient -port 20113"
This seems slighly in error as you need to specify a host for saceclient
to connect to. So assuming that I also need to specify my host, I get the
65 agr% saceclient flora -port 60000
Please enter userid: cropnet
Please enter passwd:

saceclient (ACEDB 4_8c), in file acesocketlib.c, at line 284: connect
error system error 61 - Connection refused
The userid and password work fine when I start the server in the
Any ideas??? Has anyone successfully installed the sockets server???
Any help greatly appreciated.
