Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Problem with MPI_Send and MPI_Recv
From: saparicio_at_[hidden]

The problem is the WiFi connection!

We were connecting the computers using WiFi, we have changed to a cable
connection and the program is working.

It seems that the port that MPI_Send and MPI_Recv use is closed.

Do you know which port use these commands?

Thank you,

Sofia
