We had our server crash and after rebuilding it and re installing Advantage
v10 we missed something. we can run our application directly on the server,
but when try to access it from a workstation we get a 6420 error. We don't
have a anything in Ads.ini that should affect this. Any ideas where to
start looking?

TIA

Jay

6420 means that client cannot find ADS server by discovery procedure.
Can you connect from client by Data Architect?
Read about this error code in ADS help.
Maybe firewall on server or client forbids such connections?
Also you can try to use ads.ini on client with such inside it:

[your-server]
LAN_IP=<ip of server>
LAN_PORT=<port of ADS>
