  • Check the port numbers that VPL is using. They are in the properties for the diagram.

    If you are on Vista, then you might need to enable VPL in the Firewall. Vista should ask you about blocking the program the first time you run a VPL program, but if you answer "no" then I am not sure what happens after that. Note that VPL runs its own version of DssHost called VplHost.

    Also it would help if you can post the exact error message.

  • You should open a DSS Command Prompt window and then try starting a DSS node:

    DssHost /p:50000 /t:50001 

    If this works with no problem, then there is some other issue. However, I suspect this will fail.

    You might need to pick different port numbers, or change the security. You could try using 40000 and 40001.

    Please report any error messages when you try this and we can go from there.
