Developer 7.1 : SocketException when calling remote service

Hello,
I’m trying to use Webmethods Developer 7.1 to invoke a remote SOAP web service located on a remote server. This remote service is fully functional, and i can use it with a SOAP client (SOAPUI for instance).

When I run my connector based on this service, i just keep receiving java.net.SocketException. Everything seems fine, the address of the web service in my WSDL is correct, as is the request I send to the service.

Am I missing something ?

Check if you have an firewall or some other proxy blocking this communication which you are trying to initiate. Sometimes if a route to the target application or system is not open from your end you can land up getting this error.

Ensure the network route between your server and target is open and is accepting connections.
