2. Troubleshooting

Make sure that no firewall is blocking the port used in between the server and LoadUI. Typically the ports used are 139 and 445. When your environment is setup correctly, entering the command

typeperf -q \\server-hostname

in Windows Command Line on the loadUI computer (replace server-hostname with the actual hostname or IP of your server) should return

The command completed successfully

typePerfCommandLine
