Publishing Error

Publishing Error

  
I am getting the following error message when trying to publish eSpaces for an application (the pubish seems to have gone OK, except no "blue icon"):

 Communication error
 
There was an error contacting 'dev01'.
 
System.Exception: Publishing Error: Error broadcasting message to Front-end Server dev01 (127.0.0.1)):System.InvalidOperationException: Missing "Cache.ControlPath" setting.

Hmm, 

Check if the Frontend server is running and whether eventviewer shows errors on it's startup.

If this is a fresh setup you might have a firewall blocking the port the Frontend server is running on.

You can check using telnet from the publishing client whether there is a service running.
telnet [hostname] [port]
telnet google.com 80

If on Windows 7 telnet is disabled per default; fix that using:

Thanks Eric,

You provided a clue that led me to look at some event viewer Administrator events. Outsystems was giving an error every 15 minutes that indicated it might be a problem with one of the Outsystems services. They were all running, but I restarted them, and now I publish OK.
