AIX System Engineer needed in Michigan



  • 1. socat usage under AIX w/named pipes?
    Someone recently suggested looking at socat to solve a problem allowing an application running under AIX to communicate, bi-directionally, with a remote host via a socket/port. The specs for socat sound like it will do this perfectly. However, I cannot get this working as the application seems to just hang. I've heard that named pipes under AIX are "unidirectional" and as a result I require two for the application side. socat supports dual addressing to allow this. here's the syntax: socat -d -v -x -s -lf./socat.log \ TCP4:111.222.333.444:port \ PIPE:/dev/abc-in!!PIPE:/dev/abc-out & The logs for socat show the remote socket being opened and attached and show the first named pipe being opened and readied. However, the second named pipe is prepared then opened with a return code of "-1" and I cannot determine what the minus 1 is referring to. Can anyone enlighten me on the "-1" possible cause and also has anyone used socat successfully to accomplish something similar to what we are trying? TIA
