Please help with Drb server

The Problem:

The application is using the AAF plugin. When I attempt to rebuild the
index on the production server
from the console, I get the following error:


DRb::DRbConnError: druby://ferret.mydomain.com:9010 -
#<Errno::ETIMEDOUT: Connection timed out - connect(2)>

from (irb):1


I have:

Ferret 0.11.3
AAF plugin
Rails 1.2.3
Ruby 1.8.6
Mongrel 1.0.1

On apache 2.2.3

My ferret+server.yml:

production:
host: ferret.mydomain.com
port: 9010
pid_file: log/ferret.pid

My model:

acts_as_ferret( { :fields => [ :title, :body ], :remote => true } ,
:index_dir => “#{FERRET_INDEX_DIR}” )

Where FERRET_INDEX_DIR is defined in production.rb as
“#{RAILS_ROOT}/…/shared/ferret”

I think I found the problem.

When I turn off iptables, everything works.

A hole for the drb port (TCP) you configured should
be sufficient, no need to give up security for aaf :slight_smile:
