Trouble setting up VS2013 controller and agent RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have set up a Windows Azure VM as a VS2013 test agent.

    I also have a local Windows 8 machine which acts as the VS2013 controller.

    I have connectivity between the two machines because I can telnet from one to the other on port 6901. As of now, I have only installed the agent and controller and tried getting them to communicate, without success.

    After clicking Apply Settings on the agent, the "Configuration Summary" window opens and passes all steps except for: "Test agent could not connect to the test controller"

    In the log, this is what I find:

    I, 2014/01/07, 20:35:01.603, Could not get the status from the test agent. Exception: Failed to connect to an IPC Port: The system cannot find the file specified.

    At this point, I am completely stuck. The computer where the controller is installed also has VS 2010, VS 2012, and VS 2013 installed. Could this cause a conflict or something?

    What is the proper way to do this?
