I recently updated my NetWare 6 server to NetWare 6.5 SP5. The NetWare server is a member of a Novell 1.6 cluster, with Novell BorderManager 3.8 running in it. After the upgrade from NetWare 6 to NetWare 6.5, Bordermanager does not run any more on the updated cluster node. In the "Novell BorderManager Proxy Cache Server" Console Screen, you see "Bind Error 48" - this meens that some anther services is using port 48.
Most times this is a Tomcat server issue. To resolve this problem,
1. Go to the sys:\tomcat\4\conf directory and open the server.xml file.
2. Search for: port="8080" minProcessors="5" maxProcessors="75"
3. Change the 8080 to 8081.
Now BorderManager will run fine.
You can also change the proxy port under the Bordermanager Setup page in NWAdmin.
