RP/Tux 6.5 - can't call remote service after disconnection caused by firewall timeout (Doc ID 776376.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 04, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Tuxedo / Tuxedo / 6,5
Information in this document applies to any platform

Goal

The Tuxedo /Domain gateway does not appear to restore a connection to a remote domain successfully after the connection
is timed out by a firewall.

For example, consider dom1 and dom2, which are separated by a firewall.  The firewall has an idle timeout setting. 
Thus, if a domain gateway does not communicate with its remote domain for a specified interval, the firewall
disconnects the connection.

If the firewall causes a disconnect because of the idle timeout, subsequent Tuxedo client requests from, say, dom1 to
dom2 will succeed.  However, requests in the other direction, from dom2 to dom1, will initially fail with TPESYSTEM,
then with TPENOENT, and the connection is never automatically restored.
