/dev/inet/tcp not listening in SCO 6.

While in SCO Openserver 5.0.7, Sybase listened to /dev/inet/tcp, the same is not working in SCO Openserver 6. The Network card is however active and pinging fine. What can be the reason? What is the way out?

An early response will be appreciated.

Thank you

What port number is used, and is it listed in /etc/services

Well, the network test takes place before specifying the port number. Its the sybtli command in Sybase that is used to test the device /dev/inet/tcp.
