Subject RE: Remote appender not sending

I also set up my test client to call LogManager.Shutdown( ) separately from closing the application,
with pauses in between things.  After calling shutdown (and a long timeout), this message
was displayed on the client:

log4net: Hierarchy: Shutdown called on Hierarchy [log4net-default-repository]
log4net:ERROR [TimedRemotingAppender] RemotingAppender [RemotingAppender] failed
to send all queued events before close, in OnClose.

However, all four of the previously mentioned connections remain established until the client
application itself closes, at which point those connections disappear.

OK, here is my situation.

I have a server process written that listens on the correct port for a remoting connection.
 I see it in NETSTAT:

               TCP           DEV-D-21F7T:0          LISTENING       884

My test application makes a few calls to log4net.  I have implemented the TimedRemotingAppender
shown in these posts:


As expected, nothing happens in Remoting until the timer expires.  I made four logging calls
in the test client.  I put a breakpoint in the TimedRemotingAppender.Append method to make
sure it gets called - it is getting called all four times.  Each time it calls base.Append.
  Once the timer expires and the flush( ) method is called, Remote connections show up in

  TCP         DEV-D-21F7T:52589      ESTABLISHED     884
  TCP         DEV-D-21F7T:52590      ESTABLISHED     884
  TCP         DEV-D-21F7T:52591      ESTABLISHED     884
  TCP         DEV-D-21F7T:52592      ESTABLISHED     884
  TCP        DEV-D-21F7T:8085       ESTABLISHED     7268
  TCP        DEV-D-21F7T:8085       ESTABLISHED     7268
  TCP        DEV-D-21F7T:8085       ESTABLISHED     7268
  TCP        DEV-D-21F7T:8085       ESTABLISHED     7268

I see a separate remoting connection here for each of the four log events, however IRemoteLoggingSink.LogEvents(
) is never called on the server.  Things are getting lost somewhere in the bowels of log4net,
even though it LOOKS like Remoting connections are being made.

Can anyone point me in the right direction as far as where to look?
