Please be aware that the SAP SQL Anywhere Forum will be shut down on August 29th, 2024 when all it's content will be migrated to the SAP Community.

I have opened the new question as Jeff asked me to ...

I indeed would love to download the EBF ... but since the absorption into SAP, which we were not told about (go figure why?), we can no longer download those EBFs ...

Ironically, no one can even tell us how to PAY for a support contract.

Here's the link back to the original question:

FYI, this issue is exactly the same for both SQL Anywhere 12 and 16 from the 'bad' machine. Finally, I did try with the ip address, without host name - same exact result.

Hi Joel,
Are you able to access any of link that are listed on the Breck's page: I can download EBFs either from the or from SAP's

Yes, I can access the page, but that sends me back to the '' login page which reports:

"You have selected a download which requires a Technical Support Agreement"

Those EBF pages on my blog are no longer of any use whatsoever.

Strange, Breck, I am able to access these downloads, and links such as work fine for me. But it seems that I can see patches, because my account has been migrated to SAP Service Marketplace.

(04 Aug '14, 16:10) Vlad

Joel, could you please take a look at the page: It tells that you can somehow migrate to the SAP infrastructure and get the appropriate user for patches.

"No Soap Radio" ...

When trying to register (upper right hand corner), the page asks for a CUSTOMER NUMBER ... and no one in SAP can tell us what our customer number is...

And when clicking the 'report an incident' link, it prompts for a userid and password (I'm guessing the one that would be assigned as part of registration).

So we're still stuck.

Could you also add the "LOG=" information, where you're currently seeing the Communication function sconn::receive code 4 message?

Have you tried disabling the IPV6 interface temporarily maybe to see if it is interfering with the IPv4 connection?

Do you have any Layered Service Providers installed on the machine? (You can try using ListDLLs to see if there are any external DLLs not provided by SAP being loaded with the SQL Anywhere processes). If there are any installed, try removing them. (See: - i.e. netsh int ip reset).

If that doesn't remove the Layered Service Providers, you may also want to try 'LSP-Fix' to remove them.

Applying an EBF (once you can obtain it with an SAP Support agreement) would also resolve any known issues. With a support agreement you can also then open a technical support case with support so that we can diagnose this particular case with you remotely online, in real-time using SAPRouter.

Hi Joel,

Did you originally have a support agreement with Sybase? All of the Sybase support agreements have now been migrated to SAP and someone in your organzation would (should) have been given this information as part of that migration process.

If you didn't already have a support agreement, you can purchase a support agreement now with SAP when you purchase SQL Anywhere, or you will want to contact Sales through the SAP Store.
