Subject:  Netview 6 NT Client installation problems

John, just in case anyone else wastes an hour or so, then be aware that
there is
a bug in the Netview 6 NT client installation process, as it doesn't update
/winnt/system32/drivers/etc/services with the port numbers and aliases
for the client to talk to the server. This shows itself with Cannot connect
server database messages.

Fix: copy all of the TME10 Netview 'services' entries from the server
installation to the client. Remeber that NT needs a reboot to pick this up.

Subject:  [NV-L] Listening Port - Client/Server

Anybody know the PORT number used by the Netview for NT server
for which remote CLIENTS are connected?  I'd like to find out if it's
'listening', but I don't know that PORT number.

I'm having problems with a CLIENT workstation not connecting
to the Netview for NT server.  NETCHECK doesn't connect with TCP
either, however 'nbsession' is OK.

I didn't have this problem in version 5.x.  I don't remember anything
at the server that needed starting for a remote client.  Does version 6
do something different?
