I’ve been asked a few times on how to get the U2 DBTools products, like XAdmin to connect to their VirtualBox machine. I obviously left something out in the article, so I’ve went back and updated the post for how to configure your firewall. You can follow these same steps for UniData as well.
Just to make sure you don’t miss it, I decided I should also duplicate it here…
If you want to access UniVerse (say using XAdmin from the U2 DBTools package), you will need to modify your iptables configuration.
First, in my case I have the VirtualBox network adapter set to ‘Bridged’. Now, in a shell window update iptables ‘sudo vi /etc/sysconfig/iptables’
In vi, before any LOG or REJECT lines, add ‘-A INPUT -m state –state NEW -m tcp -p tcp –dport 31438 -j ACCEPT’.
Once that is done, you simple run ‘service iptables restart’ to pick up the changes.
