Hi, if you are able to telnet these computers to port 8081 maybe you're having DNS trouble.
As you posted ePO tries to connect to computers as xxxxx.com:8081 and I suppose your computers doesn't have a .com extension.
If you try to open oin a web browser the http://xxxx:8081 url of a computer can you see its log?
Hey Laszlo, thanks for your comments.
The xxx.com was just the FQDN blanked out.
The I can view the agent logs from EPO through the web browser...going back to the server.log it seems it is not even registgering wake up calls most of the time when they are initiated.
We are trying wireshark now...seems the server is attempting a handshake but failing somewhere...although this dosn't explain why its not being recorded in the log when intiated.
