Solution for – Could not start Selenium Session : Connection timed out

If you get the “Could not start Selenium Session : Connection timed out” while running a test scenario it is usually due to the ports not matching for the Server and the client and results in “Selenium server not able to make a connection with the local client machine”.

a sample error message:

 java.lang.RuntimeException: Could not start Selenium session: Connection timed out: connect
at com.thoughtworks.selenium.DefaultSelenium.start(DefaultSelenium.java:89)
at com.ibm.lconn.files.test.ui.BaseFilesSeleniumTestCase.setUp(BaseFilesSeleni umTestCase.java:54)
at junit.framework.TestCase.runBare(TestCase.java:128)
at com.thoughtworks.selenium.SeleneseTestCase.runBare(SeleneseTestCase.java:21 2)
at junit.framework.TestResult$1.protect(TestResult.java:106) 

The solution for it is to make sure to run the on the same ports. The default port where the selenium server starts up is 4444.
