- Product: Voyager
- Product Version: 8
- Relevant for Installation Type: Local (Linux)
After migrating to new server hardware the Voyager clients give an error "Connection Refused" and the WebVoyage OPAC is not accessible.
Check that your server's system-level firewall is not blocking access.
- Temporarily disable the system-level firewall with this command (run as root):
systemctl stop firewalld
Note that when you temporarily disable the system-level firewall, it will automatically re-enable after a server restart.
- To re-enable the system-level firewall run this command (as root):
systemctl start firewalld
- To permanently disable the system-level firewall run this command (as root):
systemctl disable firewalld
Typically the system-level firewall is not required if the server is protected by a network-level firewall.
If you decide to use the system-level firewall, you will need to configure it properly for use with Voyager. See Network Ports used by Voyager.
If you are installing on RHEL 6, please open a ticket with Voyager Support.
