Password between the client and manager don't agree. Check the gui_rpc_auth.cfg file for the correct password. Make sure you are addressing the client on the correct port. Make sure you don't have an A/V program sandboxing the client or manager and preventing access. Make sure you let the programs through your firewall.

Hi Thanks for the reply.
The problem turned out to be different.
I found I had 2 versions of the cfg file and one of the xml files on the disk.
1 set in my local folder and another set where they were meant to be.
Not sure how that came about, but removing the local copies fixed the problem.
Thanks
Michael B.
