[Gluster-users] "tcp connect to failed" messages

Thanks Joe,

I tried mounting with the ".rdma" suffix after creating using "transport 
tcp,rdma" and I get the same "tcp connect to  failed" messages in the 
log - I'm using the version from the semiosis PPA at 

Looking at the dates on there I don't think it includes this fix. I've 
sent the maintainer a message asking if they could update it.  In the 
meantime would Niels de Vos' workaround work? (Setting 
transport.rdma.listen-port to 24008 in the glusterd.vol?)
