I am trying to connect to an AIX DB2 7.2 Server using JDBC but get the following message.

COM.ibm.db2.jdbc.net.DB2Exception: [IBM][JDBC Driver] CLI0615E Error receiving from socket, server is not responding. SQLSTATE=08S01

The only way it does work is if I setup an Alias on a NT DB2 Server pointing to the AIX database. Then point by JDBC Driver at the NT DB2 Alias. Basicaly use a NT DB2 Server as a gateway.

Does any one know how to fix the AIX DB2 so I can connect directly?

Note: IBM WebSphere is installed and talking to a DB2 6.x server fine on the same box.
