 Istar connection problem

I hope someone can help me with my Unix to Unix connection problem using
Istar.

Here's the setup:

Boxes A and B:  IBM 720's running Solaris 2.4 with Informix 5.06.UC1

Box C:  HP K410 running HP/UX 10.10 with Informix 7.12.UC1

Box D:  NCR 3445 running AT&T SVR4 2.03 with Informix 5.02.UC7

I am testing connections between these boxes using dbaccess

I can connect between boxes a and b.
I can connect between boxes c and d.
I can connect from box c to boxes a and b.
I CANNOT connect from boxes a and b to box c.

I always get the error message -408 ( invalid message type received from the
sqlexec process ).

Tech Support so far has been unable to help.

I have the identical service configured in sqlhosts and /etc/services -
hebstar1 using 1542/tcp.
I have all my connection priveleges set.  I have .rhosts configured to allow
connections without passwords ( tested this using rlogin. ).

I have tried using different protocols in the nettype field of sqlhosts - both
olsoctcp and oltlitcp.  It makes no difference.

I reinstalled online and istar on boxes a and b - no difference.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Don't use the relay module unless you *really* *really* have to.

Performance sucks.

I recall needing a special process called the "relay module" when connection
to a DSA engine from 5.X tools. (sqlrm)

You may want to ask support about this.
