Back to CmapServer issue--not found on 'list of Places'

For some reason our CmapServer doesn't show up on West Florida University Directory of Places. It should. I've been working on this issue for a couple of months, back-burner style, and have gotten a few replies. I'm in the middle of trouble shooting it with Doug Roberts and Rodrigo Carvajal's help. Here are a couple of cool commands I learned to check out the status of network ports:
  • netstat -nat (This will list active internet connections, servers and established.
  • netstat -at |grep LISTEN ( This lists the ____ that have the state "LISTEN".
  • nmap -sT -O localhost (This determines which ports are listening for TCP connections from the network
The saga will continue...


  1. Wonderful! Thanks to rcaraval's help in the CmapTools forum I was able to solve the 'not showing up on directory of places' problem. Here's what he wrote:

    "The Service Location Protocol Configuration File for the CmapServer is called slp.conf. It should be located under "IHMC_CmapServer/bin". Please verify the value of this variables on that file:,

    The slp.conf contains the description for each of them in case you need additional information."

  2. oops --spell that correctly: rcarvajal.
