I get the following error on connection "Server Connection Failed Reason: Qpid server connection timed out" ?
There are two possibilities here:
1) The management server is not running on the broker / the specified port check the XML Configuration page for further details.
2) This can occur if your management tool is trying to connect to the broker utilising the additional jmxremote_options.jar. You can either enable this in the broker configuration here or prevent the tool from utilising the increased security connection. For the Qpid Management console this is done by removing -Dsecurity=CRAM-MD5 from the command line.
