Hi Mike,
 
This may not be related, but I have seen problems on Linux when starting the network server using the word "localhost".  From within Eclipse, bring up the properties for the project you've added the plug-ins to and set the Apache Derby Network Server Host value to the ip address of your linux host (instead of localhost.)
 
Restart the server and see if this works.
 
Thanks,
 
Susan

 I'm using Linux Fedora core 4 and working through the eclipse derby plugin help section. I start the server from within eclipse and it seems ok. I get

Server is ready to accept connections on port 1527.

When I run netstat, port 1527 is in the LISTEN mode. Also I can see the process active.

using IJ I get the following.
ij> connect
'jdbc:derby://localhost:1527/myDB;create=true;user=me;password=mine';
ERROR (no SQLState): java.security.PrivilegedActionException : Error
opening socket to server localhost on port 1527 with message : null

When I look at the derby.log there is no evidence of a connection. When I try to do a shutdown I get

Could not connect to Derby Network Server on the host localhost, port
1527.

I have also tried t he ping argument in NetworkServerControl with no success.

I have used telnet to make a connection, and when I submit a message I get a protocol failure which makes sense.  The failure also shows up in the log file.

I'm open to suggestions.  Thanks.
