“The ABAP server specified in the server configurtion file is not reachable

Problem

When trying to log into the launch page on BPC NW 7.5 I receive either a timeout error or this:

  • The ABAP server specified in the server configurtion file is not reachable

Investigating further I find I cannot login to SAP Login

When trying to login to SAP Logon 710 I get:

partner ‘192.168.1.40:sapdp00’ not reached.
WSAECONNREFUSED: Connection refused

SAP Support suggested:

Connection refused errors are normally triggered in two situations:

– There is a firewall in the way of the connection rejecting the
communication
– The service is not running on the server

It seems that the problem here is that you are not being able to reach
the server. If you try to do a telnet test like:

telnet 192.168.1.40 3200

Are you able to open the port or you receive an error too?

I in fact cannot telnet to port 3200
