When a client application fails to connect to a server, you can test the application for diagnostic purposes. The messages that the Server Ping utility displays may provide you with enough information to solve the problem.
This test, however, cannot diagnose all types of network connection problems. Some problems may result from issues in your Adaptive Server setup, rather than in your Net-Library-to-network-software connection.
For tips on troubleshooting these setup problems, see “Failure of other applications”.
