thanks a lot. firewall it is.. It works with firewall's off, while that brings another questions from me. Is there anyway we can run mpirun while firwall 's on? If yes, how do we setup firewall or iptables?

I'm having a similar problem, not sure if it's related (gave up for the moment
on 1.3+ openmpi, 1.2.8 works fine nothing above that).
1. Try taking down the firewall and see if it works
2. Make sure that passwordless ssh is working (not sure if it's needed for all
things but still ...)
3. can you test it maybe with openmpi 1.2.8?
4. also, does posting the job in the other direction work? (4 -> 5 instead of 5 -> 4)
[fch6699_at_anfield04 test]$ mpirun -host anfield05 -np 4 ./hello
>From what it seems on my cluster for my specific problem is that machines have
different addresses based on which machine you are connecting from (they are
connected directly to each other, not through a switch with a central name
server), and name lookup seems to happen on the master instead of the client
node so it is getting the wrong address.
