Hi there,

I am relatively new to MQ, so sorry for the simple question. I want to test a connection from a 'C" client connecting to an MQ server on another machine (all running Windows - I am testing with the amqscnxc example). I am trying to setup a server using the MQ Developer kit, but I keep getting an authorisation error. Does the development kit prevent remote connections? Or do I just have a configuration problem?

Thanks,

Stan

Configuration problem.

If you've just set MQ up, it's possible youre passing an administrative user id across the remote connection. By default MQ refuses such connections.

You either need to pass an authorized but non-administrative user, or remove the security rule to allow the access.

It may be worth taking some MQ training to help you with these kinds of early teething problems. We offer very good value online MQ training. Suggest that the "Configuring Clients for Connectivity" module might help you. See my signature for details.

Thanks. I disabled channel level authorisation and I could connect. This is fine for my testing purposes. I appreciate the help.

Fair enough.

Error messages will have been logged for these failures, with better details of why the failure happened.
So, if getting an error like this, always check the error logs (AMQERR01.LOG etc) in the system-wide location and the qmgr-specific location.
Only ever consider disabling MQ's default auths for sandbox testing. NOT in production!

Hi mvic,

Thanks for the pointer. I will investigate.

For clarity:

IMHO, authorizations should be developed in TEST along with the applications needing authorizations. Apps and auths should then percolate to QA (pre-PROD), and then to PROD.

"sandbox" here implies none of the above (TEST, QA, PROD); rather, an internal environment for sysadmin testing of MQ functionality.
