Can't log via TCP


My dev/application environment is on an Ubuntu box, running SmartInspect on a windows 7 VM on the same box (to test it out).

I checked on the windows VM:

netstat -a -n -b

Windows firewall is off

From my linux box:

telnet 4228
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection timed out
I can ping it fine, just can’t seem to connect to the port that is listening, which I’m assuming is why the logging isn’t showing up in my Smart Inspect console :frowning:

Anyone experience similar? I’m pretty excited to evaluate this piece of software!



Thanks for your posting. If you cannot connect from your Linux machine to the SmartInspect Console, there’s likely a firewall/networking issue. Have you tried to connecting via telnet from your VM to the Console? You can install the Windows Telnet client via “Add or remove programs” and then “Turn Windows features on or off” in case it’s not already installed.
