Problem:

ERROR: Bad Packet

Resolution:

Information in this Brief applies to:

  • StarTeam 4.x
  • Windows, Unix


Problem

When running the StarTeam DOS command-line or Universal Edition (Java)
command-line, the following errors may occur:

Error occurred:
Bad Packet

Or, if using StarTeam 4.2 SP3 (4.2.742):

Error occurred:
java.io.IOException: Unable to read from socket. Connection to server lost.


Workaround

The StarTeam command-line interface (both DOS and Unix) rely on a TCP/IP
(Sockets) connection. The above errors occur when the endpoint specified
in the command is the TCP/IP (RPC) port on the StarTeam Server. Change the
command to reference the Sockets port and the command will run normally.
