Subject Re: telnet to slave @ 1099 OK but Connection refused from jmeter-server
Date Fri, 01 Feb 2008 18:48:41 GMT
Hello Sebb, thanks for the speedy reply. Your right I do not see a page (bad choice of terms).
But, I do see a very reasonable return for the telnet session connection to the slave:

david@worktop:~$ telnet 1099
Connected to
Escape character is '^]'.

I do the same thing when trying to <ping> an email server (SMTPd). I feel reasonably
comfortable that I have no firewall or network issues. The loopback is what the
jmeter-server is looking for and even though I have introduced the JMETER_CMD_LINE_ARG as
shown below I still get <Connection refused>.

I have defined the HOST variable and placed it in

java $SERVER $JVM_ARGS -jar `dirname $0`/ApacheJMeter.jar $HOST -s "$@"

The jmeter-server.log on the slave clearly shows the non-loopback host IP address was accepted
and set the RMI hostname property accordingly. But, once the test starts it reverts back to
the loopback address namely:


INFO jmeter.samplers.RemoteListenerWrapper: Test Started on
ERROR jmeter.samplers.RemoteLintenerWrapper: testStarted(host) java.rmi.ConnectException:
connection refused to host:

My question is how does the loopback creep back into the process since JMeter has been configured
to use another IP? Do I need to disable the loopback altogether at interface: lo?

What more information or diagnostic may I perform to gather better informational help?

Tests and monitoring pending: please advise, David.
