Console One Authentication (error -748) A Conn Timeout error

Above error occurs when authenticating to Console One for GW administration.
To be precise it occurs when the treename is used, it takes about 45 seconds, end then the error comes.
If IP address is input instead of treename there is immediate login and all is OK.

So I'm thinking SLP trouble - however all workstations can login and authenticate to the servers and eDir using the treename just fine.
SLD daemeon is running on the servers, and a slp request returns the expected novell bindery reply, and the slp.conf file is configured so that the 2 server setup points to the other server as a DA. Same DA's that work just fine from the workstation side.

Yes I can just put in IP and thats fine - however there must be a reason why C1 times out - any ideas ?

Do you have your tree name in DNS?

Since assumptions can cause problems, where are you running ConsoleOne
on? Is this the same box that your GW agents are running on?

yes C1 is run on my Groupwise box. However a C1 installed on another oes box shows the same symptom.
The treename is not in DNS however I thought of putting it there to fix the problem but this would be a workaround since it has worked fine before. My assumption was that C1 uses slp on the Linux box but i may be mistanken 🙂

OK - the treename was not in the internal DNS - however somebody at an unknown time had registered the treename i the public zone - and not having a local DNS pointing to the proper internal IP made login fail.
Doesnt really work accessing the tree via external DNS unless firewall is open for port 524 etc (and it isnt!)
So thanx for pointing the right direction - now I just need to figure out why the treename was "made public" 🙂

Having the tree in your internal DNS is also a backup for part of SLP, in
case SLP has issues. What has worked well has been to have multiple eDir
root servers as A records for the tree.
I have never seen any evidence that C1 uses SLP for its login.
