[LDM #HGE-241420]: Having problem getting LDM running



Angel,

Sounds like a firewall rule on Weather won't allow outgoing TCP connections to 
port 388.

Outgoing TCP connection to port 111 need to be allowed *only if* the LDM server 
on the remote host isn't listening on port 388 and the relevant REQUEST entry 
in the local LDM configuration-file doesn't specify the non-standard port.  An 
LDM server wouldn't listen on port 388 if it was incorrectly installed (i.e., 
if "make install_setuids" wasn't executed by root or the installation 
disk-partition doesn't honor the setuid bit for root).
