Question:

How Do I Configure a Firewall to Support Directory Services Outside the DMZ?

Answer:

MassTransit 5.1 and later allows for authentication of application and web client contacts against Active Directory on Windows 2000 Server and greater. Because MassTransit systems may sit outside of an organization's firewall in the demilitarized zone (DMZ), it may be necessary to open the ports on a firewall to allow Active Directory queries to pass through without hindrance.

Ports Used by MassTransit

Summary:

MassTransit servers and clients may report an inability to connect to a remote destination that is configured to use an IP address reserved for private internets (networks).

Description:

Organizations that require network connectivity internally, but do not require network layer connectivity outside of that organization may choose to use IP addresses that have been reserved for private internets. As indicated in RFC 1918, the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) has reserved three specific blocks for such private internets. These blocks include:

Symptom:

Symptoms:

When I drag certain files into the MassTransit plug-in using the Safari browser on Mac OS X 10.4.4, 10.4.5, or 10.4.6, Safari displays the contents of the files instead of sending them. Safari browser on Mac OS X 10.4, 10.5 and 10.6 versions reporting the same bug.

Steps to Reproduce:

Using Safari 2.0.3 on Mac OS X 10.4.4 or later, log into a MassTransit site to send files. Click the Drop Off tab and drag certain file types into the MassTransit plug-in, such as text or PDF files.

Question:

Why do I get the following error? TCP/IP Secure reports : error1407609C:SSL routines:SSL23_GET_CLIENT_HELLO:http request:s23_srvr.c:385: (6776)

Summary:

During a MassTransit file transfer, the following error message may be encountered:

Error - Transfer - Not sending file .DS_Store. End of File.

Description:

MassTransit versions 4.1 and later have been designed to ignore Unix and Macintosh system files that begin with a period '.' character. Files beginning with a period character will not be included in MassTransit file transfers.

Some examples of these files include:

Symptom:

The MassTransit Engine on Microsoft Windows platforms terminates unexpectedly. The Windows Application Event Log reports the following error message:

"Invalid key file for table 'xxxxx'; try to repair it."

Steps to Reproduce:

The MassTransit Engine may terminate unexpectedly. Following this event, both the MassTransit Engine and the MySQL Server services will produce errors that are visible within the Application Log of the Windows Event Viewer.

This message primarily means that a TCP connection was initiated on a port that MassTransit was listening on (typically port 50000). After MassTransit has opened the socket, it begins to “probe” the remote destination for authentication. Here, it is determined whether the remote side is a legitimate MassTransit contact, and further, which contact is calling. If no information is passed during this “probing period,” the connection will eventually time out and produce this error message.

Summary:

When attempting to launch a MassTransit Satellite Server, the following error message is reported: Missing Hardware Key. Following this error message, MassTransit refuses to launch.

Description:

This behavior may result from a missing or corrupt MassTransit configuration file. This file, MTCLIENT.CFG is required in order for a licensed satellite server to launch properly.

Question:

MassTransit reports "The hardware key has been removed", but my dongle is plugged in. What should I do?

Answer:

USB dongles occasionally stop responding. This behavior will result in repeated "The hardware key has been removed" messages when MassTransit is running, or "The hardware key could not be found" when trying to launch MassTransit.

Summary:

When setting up MassTransit connections between 2 sites, you can use the following method to verify MassTransit is listening for incoming calls.

Description:

From a command prompt type:

C:\>telnet xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx yyyyy
Where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the public IP address
and yyyyy is the port MassTransit should be listening on.

If you get "WATSON!" MassTransit is listening on the IP and port you specified.

The following result means Mass Transit is NOT listening:

If an expired WinZip trial has prevented you from successfully opening ".zip" files downloaded with the MassTransit Web Client, you can tell Windows to stop using WinZip and instead decompress “.zip” files with Windows built-in decompressor. Once you have done this, you can locate the files you downloaded with MassTransit in your “Downloads” folder (this is the general default setting, you may have designated a different target folder) and doubling clicking them will decompress them immediately.

When transferring files from a Mac to a MassTransit server using Firefox's built-in HTTP file transfer support (without the MassTransit Plug-in), you will be able to select two file types that cannot actually be transferred using HTTP. The affected types (.app and .pkg files) are considered "bundles" or "packages" on Mac OS X. They normally look like a single file but are essentially folders containing multiple related files.

Summary:

MassTransit logs a "file not found" error when attempting to forward a file within a Forward To folder.
This occurs when the file sitting in a Forward To folder has been manually moved or deleted and is no longer present.
