: When trying to use stcmd against a StarTeam 4.2 Server,
: the client exits with the following:
: Error Occured:
: Bad Packet

: And nothing else. This can mean a number of
: things, but what kind of behaviour
: causes stcmd to respond like this?
: I have been searching for a troubleshooting
: guide for StarTeam, but I have been unable
: to locate one.

This error occurs usually when the endpoint specified in the -p switch is not pointing to a TCP/IP SOCKETS protocol, but rather TCP/IP RPC. By default, a StarTeam server runs with the following ports:
TCP/IP (RPC) - 49200
TCP/IP (Sockets) - 49201

In this case, if your stcmd command is trying to connect to port 49200, you will get the 'bad packet' error.

Sockets is the only supported protocol for the StarTeam command line interface.
