Too many port?

Too many port?

Post by gart.. » Thu, 29 Sep 1994 21:24:02

Could anyone help with a problem we are having?

As part of a WWW service we are setting up, we hope to provide
scripted access to remote telnettable services from our server: we will
do this by telnetting to a specific port on our server which will call
up the relevant script for the session required.  We have 500 such scripts,
and so will need 500 port numbers for this.

Having added these services to /etc/services and /etc/inetd.conf we
have experienced a major system crash - there was no problem when these
extra services were removed.

Can anyone suggest possible reasons and remedies?  Could we be duplicating
ports (in which case, is there a way to check on this easily)?  Or could
there be a maximum number of ports allowed (and if so, is this configurable
so that the maximum could be raised)?

Any help would be very much appreciated.

1. Problem adding tty port using 128 Port Async Adapter with 16 port Async Node

This system is  43P-140 AIX 4.2.1.x  with PCI 128 port Async. with 2 16 port

I am tring to add tty ports to my ran system.  When I go to to smit

1)smitty tty
2)Add a TTY
3)tty rs232 Asynchronous Terminal
4)sa3 Available 04-05-22 16-Port RAN EIA-232 for 128-Port Adapter

I then get this error message
1800-109 There are currently no additional
SMIT screen entries available fo this
item  This item may require installation of
additional software before it can be accessed.

I have these files loaded

  devices.pci.4f111b00.asw  COMMITTED  PCI 128-Port Asynchronous
  devices.pci.4f111b00.diag  COMMITTED  RISC PC PCI Async 128 Port
  devices.pci.4f111b00.rte  COMMITTED  PCI 128-Port Asynchronous
  devices.pci.4f111b00.rte  COMMITTED  PCI 128-Port Asynchronous COMMITTED CX Common Adapter Software

 I noticed devices.pci.4f111b00.rte is defferent version I
 ibm web site but failed know how to get it to load twice (newbie).

I also notice I have COMMITTED PCI 8-Port
Asynchronous Adapter
Can not uloaded this smit deinstall reports dependents for these

devices.pci.4f111b00.rte  COMMITTED  PCI 128-Port Asynchronous
devices.pci.4f111b00.diag  COMMITTED  RISC PC PCI Async 128 Port

This may be were the problem is.

Thanks for any help,
