Document ID: 45105

Updated: Oct 26, 2005



This document explains the Remote Method Invocation (RMI) error message, "Connection refused to host:[localhost:1099]; nested exception is: Connection refused" when you debug a script in the Cisco Customer Response Application (CRA) Editor in a Cisco IP Contact Center (IPCC) Express environment. It also provides a workaround.



Cisco recommends that you have knowledge of these topics:

  • Cisco CallManager

  • Cisco IPCC Express

The information in this document is based on these software and hardware versions:

When you attempt to debug scripts with the Cisco CRA Editor, this RMI Error pop-up window appears.



When the error message is displayed, the ping to the Cisco CallManager server by name fails from the remote client desktop. This indicates the client desktop cannot resolve the name of the Cisco CallManager. To correct this problem verify and/or modify the ccndir.ini file which is located in the c:\Winnt\system32\ccn directory on the client desktop. Use the Cisco CallManager IP address for the LDAPURL property, as shown here.


After the ccndir.ini file is modified, below, and the CRA Editor is restarted, and the remote client desktop is able to debug script with the CRA Editor.
