I am running into the problem on one machine that I cannot start the DSS node when I run from VPL. This works on my other machine. On the machine where it does not work, I’ve verified that it does not seem to be a port issue. If I run VPL as Administrator (i.e. right click the start menu item and select “Run as Administrator”) it works. The problem is that the particular service I’m trying to work with has to run as the local user, not administrator.
Any ideas on what could be configured wrong on the machine where this is not working?
DSS nodes need to listen on ports. This is a privileged function, so Admin accounts will work but normal user accounts might not depending on the security settings on your PC. To get around this problem there is a utility called httpreserve that allows you to reserve a particular port for a specified user. Please look in the RDS documentation and search for httpreserve.Trevor
Thanks, Trevor – I should have said in my original post that I did try the httpreserve utility:Note the environment_USERDOMAIN=MikeKellyUSERNAME=Mike KellyUSERPROFILE=C:UsersMike KellyVISUALSVN_SERVER=C:Program FilesVisualSVN ServerVS100COMNTOOLS=C:Program FilesMicrosoft Visual Studio 10.0Common7ToolsVS90COMNTOOLS=C:Program FilesMicrosoft Visual Studio 9.0Common7Toolswindir=C:WindowsC:UsersMIKEKE~1MICROS~2projectsSerialPort>httpreserve /p:50000 /u:”Mike Kelly” /d:MikeKellyUnable to reserve port 50000.C:UsersMIKEKE~1MICROS~2projectsSerialPort>httpreserve /p:50000 /u:”Mike Kelly”Unable to reserve port 50000.C:UsersMIKEKE~1MICROS~2projectsSerialPort>So as other topics on here note, there are two possible cases: something else is listening on the port, or there is a permissions issue. I think I’ve eliminated the “something else is listening on the port” possibility by running as Admin and seeing it work. Here also is the output of netstat -a -t and 50000 is not listed:Active Connections Proto Local Address Foreign Address State Offload State TCP 0.0.0.0:80 MikeKelly:0 LISTENING InHost TCP 0.0.0.0:135 MikeKelly:0 LISTENING InHost TCP 0.0.0.0:445 MikeKelly:0 LISTENING InHost TCP 0.0.0.0:554 MikeKelly:0 LISTENING InHost TCP 0.0.0.0:641 MikeKelly:0 LISTENING InHost TCP 0.0.0.0:2099 MikeKelly:0 LISTENING InHost TCP 0.0.0.0:2869 MikeKelly:0 LISTENING InHost TCP 0.0.0.0:3389 MikeKelly:0 LISTENING InHost TCP 0.0.0.0:3390 MikeKelly:0 LISTENING InHost TCP 0.0.0.0:5357 MikeKelly:0 LISTENING InHost TCP 0.0.0.0:8019 MikeKelly:0 LISTENING InHost TCP 0.0.0.0:8443 MikeKelly:0 LISTENING InHost TCP 0.0.0.0:10243 MikeKelly:0 LISTENING InHost TCP 0.0.0.0:49152 MikeKelly:0 LISTENING InHost TCP 0.0.0.0:49153 MikeKelly:0 LISTENING InHost TCP 0.0.0.0:49154 MikeKelly:0 LISTENING InHost TCP 0.0.0.0:49155 MikeKelly:0 LISTENING InHost TCP 0.0.0.0:49158 MikeKelly:0 LISTENING InHost TCP 0.0.0.0:49159 MikeKelly:0 LISTENING InHost TCP 0.0.0.0:49298 MikeKelly:0 LISTENING InHost TCP 127.0.0.1:49298 MikeKelly:49305 ESTABLISHED InHost TCP 127.0.0.1:49298 MikeKelly:58603 ESTABLISHED InHost TCP 127.0.0.1:49298 MikeKelly:59760 ESTABLISHED InHost TCP 127.0.0.1:49305 MikeKelly:49298 ESTABLISHED InHost TCP 127.0.0.1:58603 MikeKelly:49298 ESTABLISHED InHost TCP 127.0.0.1:59760 MikeKelly:49298 ESTABLISHED InHost TCP 192.168.2.51:139 MikeKelly:0 LISTENING InHost TCP 192.168.2.51:2099 MikeKelly:49304 ESTABLISHED InHost Both machines are Windows 7. Both have a bunch of additional stuff installed – one thing that I thought could be the culprit that is installed onthe machine that’s not working but isn’t on the machine that is is Visual SVN Server – the Subversion source control server, which is connected to over http. But it is listening on http://mikekelly:8443/svnI am not 100% blocked by this because as I say, I have one machine that is working. I suppose I could do a complete uninstall and reinstall of RDS on the machine that isn’t working and see if that helps. Are there any other ideas? Everything else in this forum on this problem has focused on the “port in use” aspect, but I think I really have encountered some sort of wierd permission configuration issue.Thanks.
I’m having the same problem an im the administrator and i just can’t run the dss node and i have tried the same things. if you figured out how to fix it please let me know.
