iptable Problems

As root, execute the command:

% tail -f /var/log/messages

If the iptables configuration is incorrect, or iptables has not been restarted, the errors you will see are:

This output will continue as long as the TCS base programs are running. I think the problem is the RCP ports are not available (the line in /etc/sysconfig/iptables fixes this) and so the three TCS base programs can not talk to each other. If this is the case, a netconfig stop will not stop the TCS. You will have to execute a kill -9 pid pid pid to stop them. The pid's are listed with a netconfig ps.
