Setting up SAS/Connect between Windows and UNIX

I'm working in a very tightly controlled UNIX environment. SAS/Connect is licensed but not hooked up.

Is it correct to assume that the only way SAS/Connect can access a UNIX system from Windows is to add a service entry to /etc/services on the UNIX server to accept the incoming TCP connection from Windows? Message was edited by: JMarkW

Re: Setting up SAS/Connect between Windows and UNIX

If you are using telnet access method, no entry is needed. If you plan to use a spawner, adding an entry in /etc/services is optional. But it is a nice way to tell other UNIX applications that this port no has been occupied. If you at spawner startup want to refer to a service name, then you have to have an services entry. I think you can use port numbers generally, but I think it's more user friendly and a better practice to use service names.
