in thread perl socket doesn't work anymore


Looks ok for me. On your code replace:
$self->Usage ("Can't start client: $!");
$self->Usage ("Can't start client: $@");
And now, when you say it don't work, you mean that, more specificly? The socket is not opening, which error are you getting in $@?

    ok, this $@ is cool: Program: /var/opt/FirePower/bin/ Version: 2.0.0 Message: Can't start client: IO::Socket::INET: Bad protocol 'tcp' Usage: Why would tcp all of a sudden be a bad protocol?

      Perhaps someone edited /etc/protocols or switched the machine from or to using NIS.


        hmmm ... the machine was using NIS and is now using LDAP. Is that the culprit? If so, how do I resolve this? Also, why would removing NIS be the issue oh great one?
