    Angry Error:A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not respond

    Hi All,

    Current scenario :

    I am having an application using the .Net remoting concept.We are using SingleCall well-known objects to call remote object that do not retain state information that relates to each call in their memory.We are using tcp channel with binary formatter and port 7001.

    The component to be used remotingly is hosted in a Windows Service and 2 instances of the services are installed on two machines.The configuration of the services, i.e. the URI to get the remoting running, is stored in the central configuration database.The proxy reads the configuration to determine how many services are available, and how they can be reached. When a request comes in (that is, a method has been called), the proxy chooses a random Service from a list with all available services and tries 10 times.

    While creating an instance remote class through client proxy it tries 10 times,then gives an error: "A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond."

    Error Message:

    Stack trace information

    Checks already made:
    I have checked the destination address ,it is a valid IP address.I have validated hostname,it resolve to the correct address.

    I am unable to figure out reasons for it

    Any inputs for resolution will be of great help

    Waiting for quick replies as one of my functionality is not working because of it
    Thanks

    1. How are you instantiating the Single-call object in the service, via code or via app.config?

    I would suggest that you comment out the app.config Remoting call and instantiate both the client and server in code. This is more work but I have found that it is much easier to troubleshoot when there are problems.

    Hi Steve

    U know i got the reply .The problem was that TCP port on that server was not connectable even though we were able to ping that IP successfully.

    Thanks Steve for taking interest in my problem.
    Take care
