OK, then DS supposedly can connect to the CMS Server.
Still you didn’t see the connection established.
So, OK, quit DS and stop CMS.
Then delete all the CMS logfiles in the4 vlogs folder ( /Library/DAZ 3D/Content Mnagement Service/vlogs ).
Set Verbose=2 in the CMS config file (as you did before).
Then start CMS again.
Npw start DS, just start it, and click in smart content.
Now open the logfile in textwrangler, do you have a line saying something like:
(TID 4319875072): (UID 11) Connection established with '127.0.0.1:51379'. ( Connections available: '4')
If you look in your DS log (Help-Menu)->Troubleshooting->View Log File, do you have these lines in there?
WARNING: /src/dzvalentinaobjectdatabase.cpp(36): DB Register Open error: Stream EOF reached. DB Register Open error: Stream EOF reached. WARNING: /src/dzvalentinaobjectdatabase.cpp(36): DB Register Open error: Stream EOF reached. DB Register Open error: Stream EOF reached.
if you quit, DS, stop CMS, delete all logs. The start CMS, there should ONLY (like in the movie Highlander) be ONE.
The when you start DS, does it create a NEW file then or did you just forget to delete ALL logs before you started CMS last time?
No. I didn’t miss one. The date and times at the top of each vlog are only a minute apart. I didn’t test this. But I think the date and time are pretty clear indicators they were created just seconds apart
I’m assuming you mean System Preferences, Personal, Security& Privacy. It says: Firewall: Off.
Yes, my OS is not running in English version so I just tried to remember what that the labels were. And I assume you are running IP V4 (Not IP V6). Only thing I could think of that would prevent the connection.
What do we know so far, trying to recap…
(a) DS is running
(b) CMS is running
(c) DS says in the log it cannot connect to the CMS
(d) You could connect to 127.0.0.1 (Localhost) via telnet to the CMS server.
(e) You could run DS 4.0 and the CMS without any problems
Depends if they were two logs of the same type or a log and a warning file.
The log is where normal stuff is logged, the warning file contains just that, abnormalities, but often only shows when you increase the verbosity of the server to track down problems.
