I just setup a location sever. went through the setup tool and setup the hostname and ip address, etc.

When i go to WCS and try to import the location server, it using account admin/admin and trying to connect at port 8001 to the location server by default.

In my case wcs fails to connect to locatin server, what can i do to fix the problem.

That is not compatible.

Latest version of location server (providing you mean 6.0.x) works with WCS : or later only

Refer to the location server release notes to find a compatible version for WCS:


WCS 3.0 (very old) works with Location, and nothing later than that.

The WCS is trying to connect to the location server using account admin/admin, and at port 8001, but can not connect with these credidentials, I can ping between the two and also can ssh into the location sever.

-admin/admin are the default credentials, if you have a doubt, you want to re-run the setup from the installers folder

-Try with https instead of http and also make sure port 8001 is not blocked. Do a netstat -an on the location to make sure it's listening on those ports

-Delete and re add the location on WCS
