When connecting to Linchpin Mobile Gateway the 'Websocket connection' connection test fails due to an error.


The gateway service needs to establish a websocket connection to function correctly. A websocket connection is a full-duplex communication protocol. 

If this test fails the Confluence server is not able to establish a Websocket connection to the Linchpin Mobile Gateway. Potential cause include:

  • The firewall does not allow Websocket connections.
  • The firewall cuts off http-connections after a specified timeout. Websocket connections need to stay alive permanently.


Check the network setup of the Confluence server environment and configure it correctly to allow websocket connections.
