[Freeswitch-users] Python based Event Socket Library doesn't connect to remote FreeSWITCH

Hi Ken,

thank you very much for you reply. No, I didn't change any configuration in
the event sockel xml file to make eventsocket bind to anything other then
localhost. And why should I? There are no multiple NIC cards or anything
like that.
Simple configuration: two machines behind the same router - FS runs on and client runs on No firewalls and traffic
doesn't go outside the router. Event socket client won't get connected to
the FS. Problem I have is 100% reproducible.
BTW, on Mac client can't connect to the FS even if client and FS do run on
the same machine.
Any suggestions to try?
