Using a browser to test the connection to a collector

By using a "browser test" you can investigate whether a connection between a collector and the 8MAN server is possible.

 

8.0 EN browser connection check

 

Open a browser on the 8MAN server and enter the address of the collector including port "55555".

For example:

http://srv-fs01:55555

 

If you receive an error message after a time out, then the connection is blocked.

 

 

 

8.0 EN browser connection check okay

 

If you receive the following message, then a connection is possible.

The message "...expecting preamble..." is generated by the 8MAN service.  

 

Warning

Run the browser test in both directions. Accessing the 8MAN server from the collector and vice versa.

Bi-directional communication is required.
