Thread: Port 8088 is not listening

    Default Port 8088 is not listening

    I tried to go to http://[wowza-ip-address]:8088/enginemanager (with the ip address changed, of course) but I'm getting a "cannot connect" from Chrome.

    The default test screen that comes up when I start the server comes up fine and plays the video.
    When I go to I get "Wowza Media Server 3 Developer Edition (Expires: Aug 14, 2014) 3.6.4 build9641", which appears to indicate that the server is running fine.
    But when I do a netstat -a, it doesn't show that 8088 is listening, which appears to explain why I can't get to port 8088.

    Since NOTHING is ever easy, this doesn't surprise me. Any suggestions?

    Also, I just installed this a few days ago under a developer license. Did I miss version 4 by a few days? I have version 3.6.4.

    Hi, the engine manager is new to Wowza 4.0 so not available in 3.6.4
    Wowza 4.0 was released on February 11.

    Thanks. It's funny how those two things intersected. The documentation link for the old version leads to the new version.
