SAS Metadata Server connectivity issue from Windows Client machine

SAS 9.4 Servers and Mid-tier configurations have successfully been completed in Linux and Client tools are installed on Windows. Both Linux and Windows are instances on AWS.

When SAS Management console is accessed from Linux through X11 Forwarding, the Metadata Server gets connected successfully. But when using SAS Management console from Windows, there is a connectivity issue.

Error states: "The application could not log on to the server "ip-x-x-x-x.yyy.compute.internal:8561". No server is available at that port on that machine"

What could be the possible root cause for this failure?

Re: SAS Metadata Server connectivity issue from Windows Client machine

Can you ping the metadata server machine from the client?

Check during the ping if you actually get the correct numerical IP address for the server name, you may experience a DNS problem.

And check if a firewall on one or both sides prevents contact from the "outside".
