Videocache is no longer in development.

Could not connect to RPC server (videocache scheduler) at

by Anonymous on 5 Apr 2012

Dear Admin,
I installed videocache-1.9.9 on freebsd-7.2-Release there are errors like this:

tail-f /var/log/videocache/videocache.log
05/Apr/2012: 05:28:01 ERROR 681 - RPC_CONNECT_ERR - Could not connect to RPC servers (videocache scheduler) at Please check the status scheduler. If needed, restart the scheduler using 'vc-s-scheduler restart' command. [Errno 61] Connection refused

I have to restart the scheduler with the command "vc-scheduler-s restart" but the error is still there.

For its tracert log:

# Tail-f / var / log / videocache / trace.log
   File "/ usr/local/lib/python2.6/", line 764, in _send_output
     self.send (msg)
   File "/ usr/local/lib/python2.6/", line 723, in send
     self.connect ()
   File "/ usr/local/lib/python2.6/", line 704, in connect
   File "/ usr/local/lib/python2.6/", line 514, in create_connection
     raise error, msg
error: [Errno 61] Connection refused

I am using Squid-7.2 STABLE

thank you

Hi Anon,

Could you please check if any other application is listening on port 9100? If no, other reason may be your firewall blocking local connections on port 9100. Please check that as well. If it still doesn't work, please let me know.

Thank You!

Did you start vc-scheduler? Please do so using 'vc-scheduler -s start' or 'vc-scheduler -s restart'.
