Thread: Accessing SAP data

    Default Accessing SAP data

    Hi All,

    we are getting an error like below in a customer when we try to connect SAP. Does anybody think that it is about Lavastorm itself or the configuration of the SAP node? Or it is on SAP side..

    Any comments?

    "Connection refused" means that either SAP denied the request, or you have a firewall that is blocking your access.

    Hi Stony,

    So, you think that there's nothing on Lavastorm side, which is good for us. By the way, I can ping the SAP machine ( from Lavastorm machine (LAE windows server).

    thanks again.

    Connecting to SAP uses a different than the port used for ping. So testing with ping proves only that the physical connection between the two computers works. So then the next question is what is blocking the port you will use for SAP?

    Just to complete the thought. If ping does NOT work, this does NOT prove anything. Because the port used by ping is often blocked by a firewall because it can be used to find information about the physical structure of the network and this is information is sometimes considered private.
