User attempts to create an agent connection in the check-in context dialog box using workbench check-in process create agent connection.

The problem appears that the port number size is too long and that causes a buffer overflow in the package checkin process when they try to create a connection to an agent using "51001", this causes a number of "-14535" to be returned in the checkin context dialog box (which is incorrect). If they used a port number of only four(4) digits (like 6000) then the problem will not occur.

(optional) Environment:

This problem has been reproduced using Harvest R12.6 32bit and 64bit

(optional) Cause:

harvest.sig file was being included in checkouts. Error gone since the moment that the .sig file was not delivered.


The work-around is to create a connection to the agent 51001 before performing the checkin and only select the already existing agent 51001 connection in the drop down list in the checkin context dialog box and that will work.
