ETCF: TCP/IP Connection Fail

When an attempt to establish a connection to a remote service fails during establishment, this message is generated.

Code Field Description
SEID Service Identifier
The unique identifier of the service to which the connection was attempted. Values of interest include:
  • HING: HTTP Ingest Service
  • HCLN: HTTP Query/Retrieve Service
  • HCLN: HTTP Query/Retrieve Service
CNDR Connection Direction Indicates whether the connection was opened by the grid node or by a remote host:

INBO: connection initiated by a remote host connecting to the node

OUTB: connection initiated by the grid node, attempting a connection to a remote host

SVIP Destination Service Port The port to which the connection attempt was made.
DAIP Destination IP Address The IP address to which the connection attempt was made.
SAIP Source IP Address The IP address from which the connection attempt was made.
CNID Connection Identifier The unique identifier of the attempted connection.
RSLT Result Code Why the attempted connection failed:

IPAR: inbound IP address was not from allowed range

CRFU: outgoing connection refused by remote host

UNRE: destination (remote host) unreachable

ATHF: TCP/IP connection level authentication failure

This audit message means an outgoing or incoming connection attempt failed at the lowest level, due to communication problems — the corresponding service was unable to access the remote host, and the TCP/IP connection was not established.

This message can be used to detect system problems such as configuration errors where content is being pushed to unreachable hosts, or where routing problems result in inaccessibility of hosts. The message can also be used to report on the hosts to which content was pushed.

The “Connection Identifier” field allows correlation of audit messages related to actions performed during a session.
