Sprinter Mirroring Secondary machine is hanging when launching a test from Primary
Question ID: 105413

We are trying to use sprinter with Mirroring.
We have identified a "secondary" PC and it already has the same version of Sprinter on it and the sprinter Agent says it is ready.
We are logging in as the SAME use as the Primary and we are the ONLY user on both machines.

when launching the test, it shows the HEALTH CONSOLE and lists the Primary and Secondary PC and has a progress bar showing how the connection and test is going, but it gets "stuck" at 20 or 30% and just hangs there.

We looked int he logs (Sprinter install Folder \\ bin \\ logs

and see this:

Try accessing this URL from your Secondary PC, then on your Primary PC:

If it opens on the Secondary, but not the Primary, then Port 8085 may be closed/blocked by the firewall.

Try (temporarily) turning off the firewall on the Secondary PC - if everything works, then it is something in the Firewall.
Make sure ports 9000-9009 and 8085 are open.
