 7   unknown exception during step execution
 8   problems creating support archive
 9   problems in GUI subsystem; contact SAP support (BC-INS-FWK)
 10  SLC could not be started in server mode because of missing encryption jars within the used JVM
 11  executed step requested to "abort the installation"
 12  terminated by a signal
 13  service needs to display a dialog but no GUI is available; restart SAPinst with GUI.
 14  executed step stopped service execution
 15  problems concerning the SDT server's user (default 'sapsdt')
 16  problems with loading of DLL modules (only for Windows)
 17  framework error; see console output
 18  reserved for framework issues ; not used at the moment
 19  reserved for framework issues ; not used at the moment
 20  reserved for framework issues ; not used at the moment
 21 - 110  error code was defined by an exception thrown by an installation step
 // see message.xml
 111 step execution ends with an error without specifying an return code via messages identifier
 112 - 126 error code was defined by a exception thrown by an installation step
 // see message.xml

My scenario is this:

[EXTERNAL] ------------> ROUTER -----(PAT)-----> LINUXHOST

I use X11 forwarding, so am a bit worried if internet connectivity fucks up. So most probably will run in nogui mode, and change the HTTPS port to something common, and do naother PAT at my router for remotely accessing the progress update, calling with sapinstgui

I'll update on howto below later.
