Connect from SAP gateway to RFC server failed


I am getting the following error when trying to connect to SAP system.

    • I have SAPGUI on my system & i am able to login using same credentials (i.e, ip address, client, login name,password, system number etc.,)

    • I am able to telnet the ipaddress on port 3600 (which i believe must be open)(are there any other ports that need to be open??)

    • password is not case sensitive, I can use whatever case in SAPGUI & it connects

    • When i use SAPLOGON.INI settings when adding a new SAP application server from Server explorer, i get the following error


Open file 'C:\WINDOWS\sapmsg.ini' failed


    • When i use custom logon settings & supply credentials or when i try to run the sample programs bundled with SAP.NET Connector, i get the following error
