"Connection was reset" error message

Hi all,

Newbie to using gatling, please bear with me :slight_smile: Installed and attempting the example in the “Getting Started” section, configured FF browser to localhost and port 8000, but when attempting to visit http://computer-database.gatling.io/ (or any website), I receive a “The connection was reset” error.

Any ideas why this is happening?


and command line comes back with following message:

Exception in thread “AWT-EventQueue-0” org.jboss.netty.channel.ChannelException:
Failed to bind to:
at org.jboss.netty.bootstrap.ServerBootstrap.bind(ServerBootstrap.java:272)
at io.gatling.recorder.http.HttpProxy.(HttpProxy.scala:43)
at io.gatling.recorder.controller.RecorderController.startRecording(RecorderController.scala:79)
at io.gatling.recorder.ui.RecorderFrontend.startRecording(RecorderFrontE

Alright, ran tcpview and found port 8000 was already being used, changed it to 8002 and it worked!

That’s how I like people asking for help :slight_smile:
