Last Modified: 2010-05-18

I have RHEL installed and Chili ASP server installed:

Still, when I launch up my firefox and plug in this url:


I get the following error: "The connection was refused when attempting to contact localhost:5100

I dont understand if this is an apache config or a linux firewall issue

Any ideas please?

I don't have too much knowledge in this field but try running a port scan using

nmap -v devicename

and check that the port is open/available

Also you might want to check if you have access to annonymous logins.



Following is the result of the nmap scan.

What do I do now??

Well as you can see the port you specified is not open/available.

Again, I'm not an expert on this, but is SWAT running?

And if it is running, are you accessing from the machine that SWAT is running on or from a machine on the network.

Check the config file in xinetd.d again. Does it say something like:
only_from = localhost
That means you can only access swat from the PC its running on.

also check xinetd.d and check the following line

disable = no

is set to no.

I got this information by goggling your problem so I have not tested any of these suggestions.



I fixed that file accordingly.. still doesnt work.. Any more ideas?

I will do some more digging once I get some more time today.

Meanwhile, if anyone else reads this thread.  The port niftyhawk is trying to reach is not open/available.  If anyone knows how to make it open/available then let him know please.



I resolved this, by commenting two lines (the LoadModule xmlbody_module handler and Add Handler ) in /usr/casp/admin/conf/admd.conf

I am able to go to the administration panel now.

Now, I hit with the drivers issue. When I go to Server Management-> Drivers page, I get ODBC errors..

SQLState: IM003 Native Error Code:80 Specified driver could not be loaded

I am running oracle 9i on RHEL. How can I fix this??

Thanks Leo for trying !!
