[Freeswitch-users] Problems with fs_cli on OS X 10.6.4

1. Check FS is running
2. Check the port you're connecting to matches the one in event_socket.conf.xml
3. Check that event_socket.conf.xml binding to the same IP you're
connecting to (e.g. if you're connecting from a remote
machine, since the default won't work then)
4. Use netstat on the FS server to verify FreeSWITCH is actually
listening on the port you're trying to connect to (I've had a syntax
error in the config file make the module fail to load in the past
which left FS running but with no ESL socket). (If the module fails to
load there'll also be an error in the log file).
5. Check a firewall isn't blocking access to the port
