OData4j client which port am i using?

Dear Experts,

I am working on a project where i need to connect to a OData service with Java. Now I get the
java.net.ConnectException: Connection timed out. I believe this is because of the firewall at my work. However, now I need to get the port number so that they can give access to the site and open the port for me. My problem now is I don't know which port i am using, so how can i find out which port i am using?
I hope someone can help me! thanks in advance!

Cheers,

Mark Vrenken

Socket.getLocalPort(). Or .getPort() if you want the remote port.

Which of course can only work if you are connected.

Ask the people at the server end how you should connect.

What makes you think that? The last url you gave for the resource didn't work for me and i don't have any firewall problems.

Because the URL worked on my laptop but not on the pc at work...  you are probably you are right but what is the problem then? why is it working on my laptop but not on the pc at work?

It's not impossible that it could be a firewall issue, but please post your current code, preferably with testable url

CEHJ i have no experience with odata4j so i think I make a lot of mistakes during this process. It would also help if i could find a good tutorial on this. But i am very grateful that you are willing to help me. What i forgot to ask is how do you no the URL is not working? because i can go to them through my browser, so thats why i am assuming they work, but that may be a stupid thought. in any case, thanks for your help!

Also regarding the accessibility i think it is still live and i thought it was accessible because it is meant for learning/practice use.

Using the above instead in your code produces the following for me:

Food
Beverages
Electronics

Hi CEHJ,

Thanks for your reply. I will now try to make a connection without odata4j to see if i can open the connection... or if it is blocked, i have no idea how but I am now searching the internet for a test.

thanks for your responses

Make the same change as i did and let us know what happens with your own code

MarkVrenkenAuthor Commented:
I made the same changes, and now found out that it is probably my JAVA connection to the internet/network in general that is the problem. Because my netbeans cannot connect to the internet at all. I think therefore i cannot connect to the internet with my code as well.... I think because this is really off-topic of my original question so i will create a new thread with the new question. Thanks for all the help and suggestions! it is much appreciated!

Kind regards,

Mark Vrenken
