could not connect to http://localhost:8731/DLPWCF/ManagementConsoleWCFService



I am having issues on my HDLP policy server configuration.

this error pops up even if i have my firewall turned off on my ePO server. What is wrong?

I even tried replacing "localhost" to its IP address, as what I have seen in one of the community support provides, but still wont work.

Any help?

    Is  your ePO server?      In the environments I've worked in,  the IP here equals that of the ePO server.


    On  does netstat -an     show that port 8731 is listening on anything?

    Is there a host based firewall on  that might be preventing that workstation from connecting on port 8731?



    If you telnet from that workstation to 8731   ... do you get a connection, or is there an intervening firewall blocking you perhaps?



    That this service/app uses WCF is a pain no doubt.     In the environment I work in, they had to pull the ePO into the workstation domain in order to satisfy authentication requirements, but I suppose I should be relieved that there were no firewalls or ACL's to deal with regarding port 8731.     Good luck!
