Connection refused   
Connection refused on host computername

Explanation

The agent controller can be configured to restrict playback to the local computer only. If the agent controller on an agent computer is configured for local playback only, it will not accept connections from other agent controllers. This error message might display if firewalls are active on the local computer or the agent computer.

System action

The test run stops.

User response

Disable firewalls on both the local computer and the agent computer. Make sure that the agent controller is configured correctly.

If you do not want to disable firewalls, you can instead enable a firewall-aware connection. For more information on enabling a firewall-aware connection, see Running with a workbench behind a firewall.
