    as you get a "connection refused" error,

    could you please check with your IT/Network administrators if there is a proxy/firewall that terminates the connection.

    • Hi Gabriella,

      The Basis TEAM contact me and tell me that the note was not correctly applied.

      They applied it now and we are getting this error:

      Here is the text:

      <SAP:AdditionalText> javax.ejb.EJBException: nested exception is: java.lang.RuntimeException: java.lang.NoSuchMethodError:;[Ljava/security/cert/X509Certificate;Ljava/security/PrivateKey;[Ljava/security/cert/X509Certificate;)V</SAP:AdditionalText>

      Thanks in advance.

    We didn't add http.proxy entries in the Module Configuration and the connection is working fine for us. Also, use the appropriate URL as listed in note 1953125.

    Hope this helps.
