I'm using a laptop as a client to access the Matlab distributed computing server on my desktop. The problem is, the server cannot connect to my laptop via port 27371:
Description: Encountered a problem when trying to open the matlabpool.
Command Line Output: (none)
Error using ==> matlabpool at 133
The interactive parallel job errored with the following message:
Lab 2 on host PC failed to connect to the MATLAB client
on host Laptop, port 27371.
Debug Log: (none)
My questions: How do I diagnose the problem with this port on the client (how to know whether the port has been blocked by the system or not)? How to unblock the port for incoming traffic?
PS: I've removed any firewall package prior to the installation of Matlab client. The windows client (on same laptop) runs just well.
