Please be aware that the content in SAP SQL Anywhere Forum will be migrated to the SAP Community in June and this forum will be retired.


When going to "Help - SQL Anywhere 17 - Help topics" in Sybase Central, the application hangs for 5-6 seconds and presents the following error:

"The web page is not accessible".

All my co-workers has the same issue, and it has been like this for a while. And I cannot seem to find an online resource for SQL Anywhere 17 anymore.

What is happening? Is it a fix coming?

SQLA 17, EBF 6315, Windows 10.

The latest SQLAnywhere 17 documentation is here:

Or, there is the older DCX version of the doc here:

The DCX doc used to be located at until recently. That might account for Sybase Central being unable to find the help pages.

The URL used by SQL Central in your release is SAP has recently stopped access to the help server via http. You now need to use https. The software needs to catch up. A new release of the software containing a fix has not been published yet. The change is in version or later.
