Re: Problem with Axis 80 80

I guess the adminclient is trying to connect to the server you're trying to administrate but that server is either not running or you're behind a firewall which is blocking the request.

I've not used Axis but those are the main reasons for "connection refused" errors in general.

Re: Problem with Axis 80 80

I had solved it. I had to specify the port, since it was port 80 I thought it will be taken by default.

I was calling like this:
java org.apache.axis.client.AdminClient GavsWebservice.wsdd

I changed it to :
java org.apache.axis.client.AdminClient -p 80 <myservice>.wsdd

Now it works. I must have worked more on it before putting on the this forum. Sorry for the inconvienience.

Thanks a lot

Re: Problem with Axis 80 80


Thanks. it works for me.
i was running tomcat at 9090 port. so i changed the command to

java org.apache.axis.client.AdminClient -p 9090 <myservice>.wsdd
