Enterprise Broker Installation problem

Hello Everyone,
I was trying to install Broker4.0 on a new machine. And during the installation I got the following error message

"broker_create.exe produced the following output: unable to open connection to host localhost. Error java.net.SocketException: connect (code=10061) was reported by socket call.

I ignored this message and completed the installation. I could start “awbrokermon.exe” but “awbroker.exe” remain stays ‘starting’.

Please advice.

Thank you.

Bala, If you find out how to resolve this issue, can you please email me and let me know. I ran across a similar issue in the past while using 4.x version. Thanks very much.


I am having the same problem. I am using IS 6.01 and at the broker installtion time, it says that port 6849 is used by some other process and can’t create broker on this port. I used some other port, but after starting IS, I can’t see any awbrokermon process running.

If any of you have any ideas, please share them.


Try to search on this forum with the query “hard-coded port”.
Your solution will be there.
