Last updated on MAY 19, 2020

Oracle Tuxedo - Version and later
HP OpenVMS Itanium



Tuxedo 11gR1PS1 workstation client application, on OpenVMS, is failing to connect to a NonStop Tuxedo 8.0 workstation listener/handler.

Tuxedo GP_CAT and LIBWSC_CAT errors in client output when starting up workstation client application.
Output, with TMTRACE turned on, shows that tpchkauth() is being executed by the application when errors occur.

143843.TuxMachineName!?proc.xxxx.2070294208.-2: TRACE:at: } tpchkauth = -1 [tperrno TPESYSTEM]

The appearance is that an encryption negotiation failure is occurring but the connection is never made and no encryption level information from the remote WSL/WSH could have been received.


 Migrated application from Tuxedo 6.5 on OpenVMS 7.3 Alpha to Tuxedo 11gR1 on OpenVMS 8.3 Itanium
