[resolved] exception java.net.ConnectException : Error opening socket to server Connection timed out.

The following error appears when using DB2 Data Studio to link to the server’s database: SQL4499N

Ensure that the data server has been started.
Check that the database name used is the actual database name and not an alias name.
Check that the host is a valid name or IP address, and that the port number is valid for communication with the data server.
To further diagnose the problem, return to the Properties section and use the Tracing page to enable tracing. Contact the 
database administrator and provide the trace and other support information available.
Full message content: [jcc][t4][2043][11550][4.13.111] Exception java.net.ConnectException: Error opening socket to server 
/ on port 50,000 with message: Connection timed out.

When I went to the test server to check the connection, I found that I could not connect to the company’s internal network, so I could connect to the external network. Because I configured the static IP address.
Found that /etc/resolv.conf did not have a company gateway address. So after adding, you can connect the company Intranet. But the db2 connection problem remains.

Then checked the online information: https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/community/forums/html/topic?id=77777777-0000-0000-0000-000014881167#77777777-0000-0000-0000-000014882240

Enter the following command:
Db2set DB2COMM=tcpip, which is the command to set the db2 connection to tcpip
Db2 UPDATE DBM CFG using SVCENAME db2c_db2inst1, this command should be used to add the service name to db2’s config file. And then restart DB2

[[email protected] ~]$ db2set DB2COMM=tcpip
[[email protected] ~]$ db2stop

[[email protected] ~]$ db2start
SQL1063N  DB2START processing was successful.

Enter db2 get DBM CFG to see all of db2’s config

Restart DB and the problem remains.

Later, I saw other materials on the Internet and said that it would not be the problem of the firewall… Then I looked at the firewall…

Computer-> Control Center-> Firewall-> Other Ports
Click the + sign, then in the popup dialog find Port 50000 | Protocal TCP | Service db2c_db2inst1, click OK. Click on the green in the upper left corner and check Apply.

Go back to Data Studio and try to connect again. The connection is successful!
Sure enough, it’s the firewall again… Lift the table!
