neo client open-db-tunnel / specify port

Hey there,

We are currently have a project with more then one database, we need to connect.

To establish a connection to the cloud, we use the neo client and the "open-db-tunnel" command.

For the first connection the local port 30015 get assigned, but for the second connection the port seems to be random.

This forces us to update our connection data after every open-db-tunnel operation.

The first database is a HANA, the second a Sybase Database.

Is there any possibility to specify the port, which should be used?

Best and Thanks

    Hi Daniel,

    I don’t recall that there is an option to change the port while using the open-DB-tunnel command.

    Sorry I couldn’t help here,

    • Hi Jin Wong,

      we are developing a product within SAP ePaaS and are running into this issue very often, too. The most useful solution in our case would be to specify the port via a command-line argument like "-p 3042".

      Best regards.
