SAP-PO 7.50-SPS07 setup service/http/acl_file + connect NWDS eclipse

EAI-team needs to connect NWDS (eclipse) to an existing SAP-PO 7.50 java-only,

we found wiki-entry

and some sap-notes

1495075 =>

1439348 =>


trying to configure security-settings (acl_file) for http + https services

we did 3 entries in DEFAULT.PFL

service/protectedwebmethods = SDEFAULT

service/http/acl_file = $(DIR_GLOBAL)$(DIR_SEP)servhttp_acl_file

service/https/acl_file = $(DIR_GLOBAL)$(DIR_SEP)servhttps_acl_file


and two acl_files in the global-directory with



permit <fqdn_hostname>



we got the trap that the SAP-PO system did not start anymore


it looks like SAPSTRSRV job try to connect or to register SLD to the SAP-PO own sld and that fails because of acl_file ???

whats wrong ?

we already have acl_file entry for the hostname, for ip-adress of the host

any idea ?


Used URL: http://<hostname>:58100/sld/ds

HTTP open status: false - NI RC=0

Failed to open HTTP connection!

    The sapstartsrv service is listening on ports 5xx13 and 5xx14.

    Please make sure these ports are configured to be accessible in the ACL and other network devices like routers, firewalls and etc.

    In addition please cross check whether these ports are open and active on the AS Java -

    f.e. with a SAP MMC snapshot.


    matching the process name >>> PID >>> IP:port by executing these 2 commands:

    >netstat -ano
