Using Database Manager can not link to Linux Maxdb!

Dear all,

When I try to link from local XP client using Database Manager to our MAXDB server, they GUI also reminder me "ERROR:could not connect to socket (10065)." Anyone have clues? Thank you! I have STARTED the MAXDB in Linux and system is ok.

    Dear Jialin,

    the error message 10065 means that the host was not available.

    Please check whether the MaxDB server is reachable (x_ping -n <db host> -d <DBSID>).

    In any case you need to have the XServer running on the MaxDB server to enable remote connections.

    • > When I tried in x_ping from my client, it get the same result with previous "could not connect to socket [10065]. Do you know what happened? Thank you! Must I install the SSL for MAXDB?

      No, you don't need to setup SSL to use MaxDB.

      Please check, whether there is a firewall/antivirus/"protection program" running on your Windows computer that prevents the use of the MaxDB standard ports:

      sql6 7210/tcp

      sql30 7200/tcp

      sapdbni72 7269/tcp

      Also you may want to put these port definitions into the <windows_directory>\system32\drivers\etc\services - file.
