LIVE Server Connects, Stays in Working State and Then Quits

After making a connection to the LIVE Server, the LIVE Session Browser will pop up. Highlighting a session and clicking launch will start the instance in the “Working” state.

Typically, after a few seconds, the state will change to Running and then the Instance will be displayed.

If you launch the instance and it dies after being in the “Working” State, your system may be blocking the Forwarding connection.

AllowTCPForwarding yes

Make sure AllowTCPForwarding is set to yes in /etc/ssh/sshd_config. Most Linux systems enable this by default. Solaris systems disable this by default. Make sure it is enabled then restart sshd


SELinux disables ssh port forwarding by default. SELinux is a security enhancement enabled by default in modern versions of RedHat Linux and Fedora.

  1. As root, open a terminal
  2. Run: /usr/sbin/setsebool -P sshd_forward_ports 1

This can also be done from the GUI interface system-config-selinux

  1. Launch system-config-selinux
  2. Check Boolean > ssh > allow sshd to forward port connections
