Connection refused error while integrating client application with Crowd

Still need help?

The Atlassian Community is here for you.

Ask the community


Application(s) can't authenticate to Crowd and the following error appears in the client log file:

ERROR [xfire.transport.http.HttpChannel] Connection refused


The client application can't reach the Crowd server due to networking error.


Check to see if:
1. There is a proxy between the application and Crowd, and ensure that,

  • You have added configured your application to bypass the proxy. In case of JAVA application, you must set and -Dhttp.proxyPort=80 in JAVA_OPTS
  • You have configured trusted proxies for the application.

2. Check if there is a Firewall blocking Jira and Crowd communication
