I'm new to Sybase ASE.

I managed to install ASE 12.5.1 on my Win2000 Pro (SP4) environment and did not encounter any errors during installation. All default values were selected.

When I check Windows Services, the SYSAM service is not running and the error message is :

The SYSAM service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 1 time(s). The following corrective action will be taken in 0 milliseconds: No action.

Should I be worried about this ?

And, I've installed the demo database onto it and am trying to connect to it via JDBC using this URL :


and I'm getting connection refused so I guess it is a port problem. Can someone tell me what the correct default port number is ?

Thanks !
