Subject: Re: [OMPI users] mpirun hangs when launching job on remote node

Hi Ray,

Thanks for your response. I had noticed your thread, which is why I'm
embarrassed (but happy) to say that it looks like my problem was the same
as yours. I mentioned in my original email that there was no firewall
running, which it turns out was a lie. I think that when I checked
before, I must have forgotten "sudo." Instead of "permission denied" or
the like, I got this misleading response:

node02:~ % /etc/init.d/iptables status
Firewall is not configured.

When I checked again just now (with sudo this time), it turned out that
the firewall was in fact configured and running. Turning it off has
solved all my problems.

Thanks again,
