Connection refused in Jaspersoft Studio when connecting to Jaspersoft Server on AWS

Hello everyone!

I am very new to jaspersoft solutions so bear with me, I have what it might seem a very simple problem.

I am using Jaspersoft BI for AWS (hourly), I have downloaded and installed the Jaspersoft Studio and now I am trying to connect it to the Jaspersoft Server but I am getting constant errors when creating new connection.

 faultString: Connection refused: connect

I cant find any information about this problem, all tutorials assume that you use local installation of Jaspersoft Server.

1. Is there a licence problem somewhere that I am not seeing?

2. What port does the installation of Jaspersoft Server use on EC2 instance - there was no information about it anywhere. I was using port 8080 which i confirmed is open but then I checked my ec2 instance and there was nothing listening on that port.

3. Is there something dead obvious I am missing? This should be an easy step: a.) configure your Jaspersoft Server b.) connect it to your Jaspersoft Studio using the server credentials.


Thanks for any help!

One important bit of info: I have edited the security group of my stack to allow connections from the IP address I run the Jaspersoft Studio from.

Hey Paul,

Just wanted to close this and make sure everyone has the answer. When connecting to JasperServer from iReport or Jaspersoft Studio, you do not need to specify a port. Simply use the full link to your Jasperserver login page.

I am also new to jaspersoft. When trying to connect to JasperServer (running on AWS) from Jaspersoft Studio 5.5 I am entering the url that takes me to the Jaspersoft login page, but I get an error 404(not found). The same url works if I just type it into a browser.
