The following error messages may be reported by Sophos Anti-Virus for Windows to Enterprise Console:Invalid local IOR
Invalid local IOR
Incorrect local networking configuration
Invalid remote IOR
This means the Sophos Remote Management System (RMS) cannot use the local networking in its current configuration. It is usually caused by a local configuration issue.
This problem may also be mentioned in the Sophos Network Communications Report.
Check the following:
IOR (Interoperable Object Reference) is a reference to a CORBA object; it contains information needed by CORBA to establish communications between CORBA objects and their clients. This information includes the IP address of the computer and is generated by the Remote Management System (RMS) router at startup, based on the TCP/IP configuration. Should the IOR contain a loopback address, this exception is caught to prevent further problems.
