Issue/Introduction

The XNET started task fails upon startup with the error: xntTCP900E Listener error: PXNWTSS function LISTEN - 13: Access denied. 

Cause

The listener error -13 (Access Denied) will occur if PORT UNRSV TCP * DENY WHENLISTEN is stated in the TCPIP profile, but the port associated with the XNET STC 

has not been reserved for its use.

Environment

Release:
Component: CIDB

Resolution

Reserve the PORT (as stated in the XNET STC proc) for XNET's use.
