Windows troubleshooting

Communication test

Use telnet from Windows to test connection to LPAR2RRD server, on the Windows side:
  • start telnet to connect server, instead of IP you should test also FDQN if you use it

  • write protocol number which is in this case 6.3, you must got same answer from server
    take care if you have echo on/off

  • write following text
      HYPERV:my_computer:::Wed Feb 12 11:58:34 2014:file_name::::file_content

  • after sending to server by key you must get answer 13

on the LPAR2RRD server side you should see this:
$ cd /home/lpar2rrd/lpar2rrd

$ ls -l tmp/HYPERV/my_computer
  -rw-r--r-- 1 lpar2rrd lpar2rrd 13 Mar 21 17:03 tmp/HYPERV/my_computer/file_name
File tmp/HYPERV/my_computer/file_name should contain stringt "file_content", note there is no end of line, so "cat" cmd does not show it, use a file editor to check it out
