Ports in NT

By Jeff Williams ·
We use Vista Plus as a reporting tool for Oracle Applications. I'm having trouble with the application simply not responding. When users try to login, it's as if the application service isn't running (of course it is). When I do a netstat while users can't login, I can't see the port that the application uses but as soon as I restart the service, up pops the port. Has anyone seen this type of behavior before? I've spent a number of hours with Quest technical support and they believe it's an NT problem. I'm inclined to agree but don't know how to troubleshoot this one. I've scoured TechNet to no avail. Any help would be greatly appreciated by me and the 100 or so users that use this application.

I dont know if this will help but its a good idea to try it.
Check in the Control Panel that all services that have anything to do with that are runing at startup If u need an account for that stratup create a special account just for this service and make sure it has the permission to run the service.
Also make sure that DCOM is configured correctly if if uses DCOM.

It only uses one service which is configured correctly and doesn't use DCOM.

Running SP6a. No other applications are running on this server. No defined ports other than standard NT ports. The port the application uses is well beyond any standard NT ports.

Call Larry Ellison. I'll bet he would help.

install any free firewall-software and you'll see the port used.
