I'm having problems installing an ACE 4.1 aceserver on a SPARC 5
running Solaris 2.5. I have done the following according to the

1) Compiled Aceserver/client using gcc 2.7.2
   (I did get a complaint about a redefinition of RPC_ANYSOCK
   (between a gcc include file and rpcace.h

2) Entered in /etc/rpc : 

   acedbd          20000116 rpc.acedbd

3) Entered (as one line fields separated by tabs) in /etc/inet/inetd.conf :

   20000116/1      stream  rpc/tcp wait  mark    /opt/local/bin/rpc.acedbd
   rpc.acedbd      /opt/www/acedb/xg       20000116  600:600:100
4) done kill -HUP [inetd_pid].

5) I also have the line in my /etc.services:

   acedbd	20000116/tcp	rpc.acedbd

   also the line nsswitch.conf :

   services:	files      

I  tried three other things : - rebooting the machine (at least once)
                              - starting the aceserver as a foreground
                                process (I get the message 
                                !! internal system error: No valid port
                              - edited the wspec/server.wrm file

This is most frustrating I have had this working today and now it
refuses to work for love nor money, can anyone help??

Many thanks in advance
