When trying to execute the tutorial's command
dbmlsrv8 -c "dsn=test_consol" -o mlserver.mls -v+ -dl -za -zu+
the following error occurs (copied from the log file, mlserver.mls):
Error: Unable to initialize the 'tcpip' network layer. Unable to bind a
socket to port 2439. The system-specific error code is 10048 (hex 00002740).
followed by (still copied from the log file):
Synchronization Server shutting down
Synchronization Server undergoing Hard Shutdown.

This is a new thing after my workstation was replaced with a Pentium 4-based
Compaq (with Win2000 Professional).
I ran this on the previous workstation (Win NT, Pentium III) with no
problems.
Anything like this happened to someone else?

I also got a similar message when:
I ran the command line:dbmlsrv8 -c "dsn=ASA 8.0 Sample" -v+ -zu+ -za
Message was:
MobilLink server experienced an unrecoverable error on setup.
<Main>: Error: Unable to initialize the 'tcpip' network layer. Unable to
bind socket to port 2439. The system specific error code is 10048. Press OK
to shut down.

How do we solve this problem? Help please.

hi Kumar,

i think the problem is, the mobilink syncronization server is unable to bind
the port 2439 which sis default for the mobillink sync server. try , by
explicitly specifying a port number for the clinet to connect.
for example , see the -x command lline option for the dbmlsrv8.
note:you must use the same port number when you connect your mobilink syn
clinet.
hope this helps you.

Step one is to check if TCPIP is working. Try pinging the machine and see if
that works. If it does, then the next thing to check is whether some other
process is using port 2439.
