SPM connector

Have a problem that I have never seen....I have a connector defined in CUP, connection sucessful....the same connector configuration in SPM gives an error:


Connector could not connect Connect to message server host failed Connect_PM TYPE=B MSHOST=abp.sap.whirlpool.com GROUP=ALL_APPS R3NAME=ABP MSSERV=sapmsABP PCS=1 LOCATION CPIC (TCP/IP) on local host with Unicode ERROR timeout while pending for route completion TIME Wed Oct 20 12:02:37 201 RELEASE 700 COMPONENT NI (network interface) VERSION 38 RC -12 DETAIL NiErrSet COUNTER 1


when I have seen this error before, it didn't work in CUP or RAR either. This is the first time that I have seen this error only in SPM. Any ideas?
