FSSO only listening on localhost

I have a strange problem with the FSSO Agent.

 

My Server is a Windows 2012 R2 64 bit

I installed FSSO and it starts up normal but I cannot connect to port 8000 from anywhere except from the same server to localhost.

 

So when I do a "telnet localhost 8000" I get an answer from the FSSO agent but even when I try a "telnet [ipadress] 8000" on the same server I don't get any answer. 

 

The firewall is off on the server for testing purposes.

Hello,

   If you followed normal installation steps:-

http://cookbook.fortinet.com/providing-single-sign-using-ldap-fsso-agent-advanced-mode-expert/

FSSO agent must be listening on port 8002 on server and Fortigate will be looking for FSSO response from the server on 8000.

It's better to reinstall FSSO agent and follow installation steps recommended in the above document.

Hello,

 

Keep in your mind that always after install "collector agent" is required a reboot.

I followed the instructions.

I rebooted the server several times.

The problem peressists.

The FSSO Agent (not the DC collector agent) is listening on port 8000 as it should but ONLY for connections on localhost on the same server.
