Remote Sign-on on WRDS does not work, why?!

Hi All,

I am trying to run remote sas on wrds by this code:

%let wrds = wrds.wharton.upenn.edu 4016;

options comamid = TCP remote=WRDS;

signon username=_prompt_;  /* I also tried this option: Username=XXXX Password=XXXX but got the same result*/

rsubmit;


but after I enter the user and password in the prompted window , I come to this error log:


195  %let wrds = wrds.wharton.upenn.edu 4016;

196  options comamid = TCP remote=WRDS;

197  signon username=_prompt_;

NOTE: Remote signon to WRDS commencing (SAS Release 9.02.01M0P020508).

ERROR: A communication subsystem partner link setup request failure has occurred.

ERROR: Cannot start remote process.

ERROR: Remote signon to WRDS canceled.

198

199

200

201  rsubmit;

ERROR: A link must be established by executing the SIGNON command before you can communicate

       with WRDS.

ERROR: Remote submit to WRDS canceled


Can anyone please help me why is this happening? Could it be because of my firewall settings?

Thanks

I'm not familiar with WRDS, and don't know from where (or on what) you are trying to access it, but possibly the following might help:

Thanks a lot Arthur,

I should wait till my administrator installs that for me to see whether works.

Try input your username using all small letters. Wrds support said that the username for remote access is case-sensitive.

 

Sometimes I need to restart SAS to make this step work. Before getting to this step, I also tried to deactivate my firewall/ allow the SAS to go through firewall. 

 

Hope it helps.
