Has anyone successfully configured a Push To An External Websocket with ESRI geoevent? I have an input a connector, service connector, and an output, however when I start the output I immediately get the error:

Status: Error - Could not startup the WebSocket Transport. An initialization problem has occurred. Error: Connection refused: no further information.

I increased the buffer and text bytes to 102400 in the settings and used the default output settings: ws://localhost:80/ws also tried ``wss://localhost:6180/ws2`

I am outputting a simulation stream to troubleshoot and I can output UDP so I know GeoEvent is working in some capacity.

I have tested this both on linux redhat 7.1 and windows 7 and the results are the same. I can attempt any suggestions provided on either OS. And I am running ArcGIS Server 10.3.1 on local machines.

  • connection refused sounds like a firewall blocking the port - check the ports are open on windows and hardware firewall (through your IT) note: antivirus (ex avast) automatically blocks all ws events – Mapperz Sep 24 '15 at 14:50
  • Good suggestion..Firewall is off still did not work – risail Sep 24 '15 at 15:06

Geoevent OOB does not install with a connector capable of pushing data to a web socket. The required connector can be found in the ESRI Geoevent Websocket tutorial located here http://www.arcgis.com/home/group.html?owner=GeoEventTeam&title=ArcGIS%20GeoEvent%20Gallery&content=all&start=1&q=tutorial&t=group&focus=group

It can be found in the folder \websocket\configurations and is imported with Site>Configuration Store>Import Configuration
