I'm trying to connect python to SAS in order to insert data into a SAS table. but i'm getting the following error:

Using SAS Config named: winiomwin We failed in getConnection The application could not log on to the server "xxxxxxxxx.xxxxxxx.xxxxx1.xxxx.xx:xxxx". The user ID "<oladokun>" or the password is incorrect. SAS process has terminated unexpectedly. RC from wait was: 4294967290


I have saved "-authinfo" file without extension user's home directory with the following information

AKEY user <xxx....> password <xxx....>


I also have file saved

winiomwin = {'java' : 'java',
'iomhost' : 'xxxxxxxxx.xxxxxxx.xxxxx1.xxxx.xx:xxxx',
'iomport' : 8561,
'encoding' : 'utf-8',
'authkey' : 'AKEY'


Can you please help understand the problem and a solution. Thank you

It looks like the port you provided would be for the Metadata Server, not the Workspace server. Make sure the IOMHOST is correct for the Object Spawner that launches the Workspace server you're trying connect to, and use the IOMPORT configured for Workspace Server for that Object Spawner.
