I have a struts-based application running under the following environment:

OS: Win XP-Pro
Application Server: Tomcat
DBMA: SQL Server 2000

It always worked fine, till I installed WinXP-Pack2 and McAfee Stinger. Now the application can not establish a socket to the DBMS, and I get SqlException.

1-Could pack2 be the reason?
2-What should I do?

Any help would be highly appreciated.

Thank You,
Pourang Emami(SCJP, SCBCD)

Pourang,
My guess is that the service pack closed a port that used to be open. Check to see if you can ping the port that the database is on.

You are right. It is a common problem with WinXP-SP2 and SqlServer. I followed the instructions given in the following link, but my problem is still unsolved!?
Any help would be appreciated.

Not sure which would be the correct forum for this question. But since, it has been answered, I am just going to close this thread instead.

Please refrain from posting off-topic questions. This forum is for Servlets questions only. Your question is specific to Windows and SQLServer, and not Servlets.

Thanks

Mark
