Not able to access teradata

Hi Gurus,

I am new to Teradata and have installed demo version from Demo CD on my office laptop (windows xp proffessional), which is connected to a domain.

When I tried to start the service in Teradata Service Control, I am alway able to see only "Down/Stopped". When i tried to start the serice "Teradata Database Initiator (Recond)" from windows service screen, its starts and stopped automatically.

Windows system event log shows error message like "PDE Critical daemon recond no service file defined for pderecond1 port: WSAGetLastError(): 11004"

My host file is having entry is "127.0.0.01 Datumlt-dev9.gdot.ad.local DemoTDAT".

Firewall is also disabled.

Please help me to resolve this problem. This is driving me crazy.
