ABAP Developer Edition ports used and connecting GUI

Hi all,

I have successfully installed the ABAP Dev system. It starts and stops. Now I am trying to connect the GUI but it fails. First of all I see all docs say connect to port 3200, but the DEV system only exposes 3201, which I assume is the correct one?

Connecting BOTH SAP Gui (Windows) or Java GUI to port 3201 yields an error. In fact connecting the GUI to ANY of the exposed system ports yields an error.

Does the GUI even work with the Dev system? If not what can I use?? The doc talks about installing the license (which I could generate). How to do that without a GUI??

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you

    I'm using port 3200 for both Windows and Java GUI, installed in virtualbox, so it should work. The license key should be installed with the GUI, so you need to fix that first.

    How did you install it? If in a VM, did you forward the ports?

    If directly on server, check you don't have a firewall in the way.

    This is an ubuntu instance on AWS, full access to the machine etc. no firewall issues.

    I have installed this thing 3 times now!

    I am starting the system by:

    a. su npladm

    b. startsap

    It seems to start successfully BUT nothing is listening on port 3200!

    I installed it using these instructions:

    Is there another process needed for the GUI to connect to??
