Goal

A /WS client program is installed on a machine that connects to the server application through AOL 7.0 (dial-up) and
VPN software.

The security settings are as follow:

SECURITY        APP_PW
AUTHSVC         CHKAUTH

The call to tpinit() fails and logs the following errors:

132006.DEMO8!?proc.1020: 071902: TUXEDO Version 6.4 32-bit Windows.
132006.DEMO8!?proc.1020: LIBWSC_CAT:1037: ERROR: Network message receive failure
132006.DEMO8!?proc.1020: LIBWSC_CAT:1371: ERROR: Unable to get reply to OWS_TICKET request
132006.DEMO8!?proc.1020: LIBWSC_CAT:1338: ERROR: Unable to send ticket to WSH
132006.DEMO8!?proc.1020: tpinit failed

If either AOL 7.0 is not used (another ISP for instance) or the VPN is turned off, the application goes through.
