Hi there,

I am trying to debug a perl script remote from an aix machine and get the
following error:

Unable to connect to remote host:
Compilation failed in require.

My current configuration:

Eclipse SKD 3.2.1
Epic: 0.6.17
Perl: 5.8.8

There is no firewall involved.

Any idea what goes wrong?

I found the reason:

It's not a firewall issue but a windows policy which only allows a specific
javaw.exe to accept messages on port 5000. After I renamed the new java
home directory to the old name I could connect to the client.
