This article contains troubleshooting guide for Enforcement Agent.
To troubleshoot the Enforcement Agent (EA):
Check the service status.
- Go to Task Manager > Services.
Check if IWSaaSLocalProxy and IWSSrv are both running.
Determine if there's a port conflict.
- Run netstat -ano | findstr 8080.
- Copy the process ID (PID) and open Resource Monitor > Network > Listening Ports.
- Check which process has the same PID (for this case it should be iwsproxysrv.exe. If not, kill the process and check if you can now connect to TMWS).
- Get a copy of netstat (run netsat -ano | findstr 8080 > C:\netstat.txt) and screenshot of Resource Monitor.
Check if the port (127.0.0.1:8080) is listening and if it is being used by the local proxy.
Port is opened by the process (PID=4632), which is IWSaaSLocalProxy service, according to the step 1. Check the service status screenshot.
Use Telnet to connect to it.
If the connection fails, the EA may not be running properly or the port is blocked.
Verify if the URL in the address bar will change to http://127.0.0.1:8080... when you try to download the PAC file.
