I think, the big problem is here, that the sapms - Service couldn't found it. The entry of Service Port 3600 is in services file. The OS is Windows 2003.

Thanks for your help.

looks like the entry in the service file ( ..\drivers\etc) is incorrect.Double check the instance number. it should be like

<service name> <service number>/<protocol>

eg: sapmsPRD 3601/tcp ( 01 instance number )

check whether the lookup for specified service name is possible for that port number.

use this command

niping -v -S <service name>
