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

Hello Sofia,

Ok, so I really wanted the stack of when you run with "-mca
mpi_preconnect_all 1" I believe you'll see that one of the processes
will be in init. However, the stack still probably will not help me
help you. What needs to happen is to step through the code in dbx while
the connection is trying to be established. I am hoping you might find
the connect call fails or that we've been given an interface that
somehow cannot reach the other node. However, when you specified "-mca
btl_tcp_if_include eth1" that should have forced things to use the
interface you need. So it really comes down to why are we not
connecting to the eth1 address? Are we failing on routing to that
address or is the connect failing because we are trying to use a port
that we are not really allowed to use or is it something else?

I don't think it is a routing problem since you are able to reach each
node via ssh. Is there someone else on the list that might want to lend
a hand here? I feel like I am missing something obvious going on here.
