I installed TREX 6.0 SP1 on a WindowsXP machine apart from the portal server and I wonder how to start the needed HTTP-server on port 8353? The TREX-service started correctly and a trexdaemon, indexserver, queue and a preprocessor are running, but the portal can't get a connection.
Did you follow the installation guide for TREX Installation?
Did the perform the post installation tasks as described in the installation guide?
I am sure your problems would be solved once you follow the instructions in the installation guide. Make sure you perform all the post installation tasks listed in the Installation Guide.
from wrong configuration in the portal to network settings (e.g.: do the portal server and TREX communicate through proxy or not (should be excluded from proxy)? Is there additional security software involved, etc.) there can be quite a few reasons. Hint: If you cannot ping from EP to TREX it is network settings rather than portal or TREX configuration.
