A cluster connection problem generally means that either the server or a client window is frozen.
Master can’t connect to slave’s VRDaemon
In the master’s log, you see:
[X] ConnectToDaemon:Failed to connect to '192.168.1.2'.Is the VRDaemon running? [X] RemoteStart: Failed to connect to daemon.
- Make sure you have the VRDaemon running on all the clients.

If Putty can’t connect to the server, you will get the following error:
