I'm trying to troubleshoot a problem for one of the
developers here. She is trying to connect to another web host we
have using cfhttp. The connection is timing out. I do not see the
connection attempt being made in the logs of the destination
But, if we attempt to do a ssh connection from the host to
the destination server the connection suddenly starts to work.
Yesterday the server was rebooted and the same thing happened. The
http connection is not done, but starts to work when a ssh
connection from the server to the destination host is attempted. So
we know that it's not a network issue.
Any ideas why the Cold Fusion server cannot locate the
destination without the server previously connecting to the remote
host via another transport?
This is a Cold Fusion MX 7 server running on Solaris via
WebLogic 8. I'm not a Cold Fusion person, so let me know if you
need more info.
