My shake is on network but cannot access locally with swarm

Hi. When using Swarm, I am able to access my shake’s data through the RS community network (although approx 30 min. behind) but can’t see the data using the local MyShake in the data chooser. This failure to connect shows up in the command prompt window when the swarm console starts:

I can ping by shake’s IP address ( from the command prompt and access it’s data through the community network, but not locally. The log file is attached. Thanks for your help.

the port for the community server, 16022, and for the local shake differ.

re-configure access to your local shake to use port 16032 and try again.

alternatively, you can download Swarm from the Shake directly from the FE-config web-page at ACTIONS::DOWNLOAD::SWARM, this has Swarm pre-configured for both the Shake’s local IP address and to use the correct port.


Hi Richard,

Thanks very much–now it is working perfectly.
