APM Connector


The APM Connector is setup to connect to APM EM using port 8081

There's a firewall between the APM EM and APM Connector server.

We test the connection by using 

telnet <hostname> 8081 and got a connection failed message.

Customer needs to open the port between the APM Connector server and APM EM.
