I am unable to get to the 3ware 3dm2 web interface. When I attempt to execute 3dm2 from the command line, i get the following error "(0x0C:0x0005): Failed to start listening socket". This was working years ago, but now that I'm trying to access it for my new RAID install, I am unable to access the web interface.

The service appears to be running, and I am not using any iptables firewall

# netstat -tupl
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address           Foreign Address         State       PID/Program     
tcp        0      0 *:888                   *:*                     LISTEN      5191/3dm2       

# nmap -sT
888/tcp open  accessbuilder

I am on 32-bit debian 6.0.9 (squeeze), with 9650se-4lpml and a 7506-4LP. The 3ware-3dm2- package was installed using aptitude and is at version

Any help is appreciated. Hopefully it is something simple.

  • The service is already running. Why are you trying to run it more? – David Schwartz Feb 22 '14 at 17:21
  • The service is running but I am unable to connect to the web interface at https://<ip address>:888 – harmonic Feb 23 '14 at 1:47
  • What happens when you try? – David Schwartz Feb 23 '14 at 2:09
  • the webpage is not available – harmonic Feb 23 '14 at 3:30
  • Try with http:// not https://? – eckes Apr 27 '17 at 1:42

Are you trying to connect from another computer? If so, in /etc/3dmd2/3dmd2.conf you need to change:

RemoteAccess 0


RemoteAccess 1

And restart the service.

  • Thanks for the help, I was hoping this was it. I am connecting from another computer (the server does not have X), but after checking, RemoteAccess is already set to 1. – harmonic Feb 23 '14 at 14:41
  • The 3dm2 software should do some logging, can you find any log files in the directory where it was installed? – aseq Feb 24 '14 at 20:49
  • I cant seem to find anything being generated in /etc/3dm2 /usr/share/3dm2 or /var/log. The only thing I can think of is that this binary is not working on wheezy – harmonic Feb 25 '14 at 13:09
  • Try to run it with strace and see what it tells you. I have used 3dm2 a lot and I can't remember other pitfals than the one I mentioned, using https and the default password. It's quite well behaved. – aseq Feb 26 '14 at 9:13
