It can occur that you cannot connect to openAM administration console ? So what ? You may use Wireshark to test OpenAM connection.
You need to understand where the origin of the discrepancy is coming from.
The best way to troubleshoot it is to use wireshark which is a very powerful packet filter analysis tool.
In the case below, I have my openam server running at URL
To diagnose what’s going on, wireshark filter has been set to (http and (tcp.port ==18080)) which allows to track down all the http traffic going to port 18080.
The http traffic occurring on this 18080 http port appears on the screenshot below. Like this, you can easily diagnose any problem very quickly. It is even possible to record the trace, and dive into each frame.
