Pb starting gifaceserver

Bonjour à tous,

I am in the process of moving acedb to a new computer.
I've (finally...) succeeded in installing acedb (4.7l) in
/database/acedb, which runs ok.

Now, I want to use Aceperl/Acebrowser.
So, following what I've done for the "older" computer, I have:

installed Aceperl 1.67

installed AceBrowser 2.10 (following its readme)

got gifaceserver from acedb_server_4_7l_linux_libc6.tar.gz, moved it to
/usr/local/bin, and made a symbolic link as follow: ln -s
/usr/local/bin/gifaceserver /usr/local/bin/rpc.gifaceserver

added the following line to  /etc/services
acedb	20000114/tcp

added the following line to  /etc/rpc
acedb	20000114	rpc.gifaceserver

added the following line to  /etc/inetd.conf
acedb/1	stream	rpc/tcp	wait	acedb.U119	/usr/local/bin/rpc.gifaceserver
rpc.gifaceserver /database/acedb 20000114 1200:1200:0

Restarted inetd 

But things don't behave as expected...and I can't access acedb on this
new computer as I used to on the "older" one

So, I've tried to start gifaceserver manually:
$ gifaceserver /database/acedb 20000114
// Database directory: /database/acedb

tar: Member names contain '..'
Ne peut enregistrer le service: RPC: incapable d'effectuer la réception;
errno = Connexion refusée
unable to register (RPC_ACE, RPC_ACE_VERS, udp).

Any suggestions on how to set things right will be appreciated!
