Thread: WowzaStreamingEngineManager Login Failure

    Default WowzaStreamingEngineManager Login Failure

    I am trying to upgrade my old Wowza with a new one, the new Web based manager looks great but I can't connect to it. I tried adding a wildcard to the whitelist, tried putting "none" in the AuthenticationMethod, tried stopping starting services, restarted server and still can't get connected. I get the error: "Could not connect to server: " I tried it both as localhost, and specifying it in the "Wowza Streaming Engine URL".
    Checking the log files I realized I installed Wowza 4.0 and the license key I have isn't valid. I am getting that updated and not sure this particular problem would have anything to do with that but I mention it just in case. There are no other errors in the log.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks Tim, so I assume that means that it is a licensing issue. I was hoping to be able to do all the performance tuning while waiting but guess it can wait a little longer.
