Re: [Condor-users] gateway

You need to have network access from ALL submit nodes to ALL execute nodes and vice-versa, for
udp and tcp, over some specific ports and for an advertised high port range. Communication from submit to
central node is not sufficient.
has more details.
You could open up the firewall(s) for all these ports on all the execute nodes and submit nodes,
or you could look into using a GCB (see another thread - that was about a private network, but the
same considerations apply).

We are having problems getting jobs submitted from a linux submit host to a windows lab behind a gateway.  On the windows machine, we have errors in the starter log as follows:

0/3 19:10:35 Communicating with shadow <>
10/3 19:10:35 Submitting machine is "opteron-cluster.nic.ualberta.ca"
10/3 19:12:34 condor_read(): recv() returned -1, errno = 10054, assuming failure reading 5 bytes from <>.

10/3 19:12:34 ERROR "LocalUserLog::logStarterError() called before init()" at line 205 in file ..\src\condor_starter.V6.1\local_user_log.C

On the submit node, in the shadow log,

0/3 19:16:58 Initializing a VANILLA shadow for job 85.0

We have put in holes in the gateway so that there is communication between the lab and the submit host and the  central manager. We can ping between these machines without any problems and the collector gathers information about the available machines. However, there is something special about the submit-execute communication that seems to be blocked by the gateway. If the gateway is opened up, everything works fine.
Is there anything we can change to condor or to the gateway to make this work?

Thanks for your time.
