How to install a rest api on a secondary robot?

installed the 20.4.2 wasp probe and the webservices_rest API and the wasp is working, but the 

http://<hostname>/rest/version-info link responds with 'connection refused.'

Environment

Release : 20.4

Component : UIM - WEBSERVICES_REST

Resolution

Install the following on an existing Windows robot:
  1. Operator Console (OC) 20.4.2
  2. webservices_rest 20.4.2
Then:
  1. Disable the samlsso webapp in the wasp (this webapp was causing the wasp to fail after the initial install)
  2. Copy the certificate.pem file to the new wasp robot and add the “cryptkey = <file system location>“ to the robot.cfg
  3. Specify the full data_engine address in the wasp.cfg /<domain>/<hubname>/<hubservername>/data_engine
  4. Restart the robot service

Then the rest calls should be working to the new wasp robot.
