I have my system configured to transport SLD objects. However, when I add the "DEPLOY_SLD_URL" parameter to the transport tool configuration I seem to get an error about "xi ping" and "sld ping" failing when I run the "TMS: Check Transport too". The "xi ping Could no connect to XI" and the "SLD ping Could not connect to SLD" errors are shown under the Deploy Tool section.
Any ideas? I don't know if these messages even matter.
