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*/
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.
ERROR: A link must be established by executing the SIGNON command before you can communicate
ERROR: Remote submit to WRDS canceled
Can anyone please help me why is this happening? Could it be because of my firewall settings?

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:

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.
