eFORMz Ports

To check for what, if anything, is using the ports we have, issue the following command:  netstat -anop | grep 999. This command will show the open ports and what application opened them.

List of Ports

Class Port
com.minisoft.DynamicService.DynamicService 9990
com.minisoft.Run.ServiceController 9995
com.minisoft.Director.Director 9996
com.minisoft.mta.service.Service 9997
com.minisoft.webserver.WebServer 9998

Port 9996

If connectivity is an issue with the Director then the ‘netstat’ ( Windows ) or ‘nmap’ ( Unix/Linux ) command should be issued to verify that port 9996 is in a “listening state”. If so, and connectivity cannot be achieved, then it’s likely a firewall issue. However, if the port is not in a listening state then the Director will fail to initiate the listener and the log files from Director and Run should be reviewed.

Here is the ‘netstat’ command issued from Windows with the port ( 9996 ) highlighted:

Here is the port connection information for the AS400:
