Aeroo Connection Error

on 12/19/14, 5:21 AM 936 views


I have configured some reports with Aeroo to attach and send as email from Quotation, everything was working fine but suddenly i am getting following error,

"DocumentConversionException: Failed to connect to OpenOffice.org on host localhost, port 8100. Connector : couldn't connect to socket (Success)"
Can anyone help me on it?

Which Odoo version are you working with?

Try this

1./ Try to create file under /etc/init.d

  • touch office_service
  • edit this file - vim office_service
  • paste the following in it and save it-

/usr/bin/soffice --nologo --nofirststartwizard --headless --norestore --invisible "--accept=socket,host=localhost,port=8100,tcpNoDelay=1;urp;" &

  • change the access rights

sudo chmod +x /etc/init.d/office_service

  • set it to defaults to start automatically when the system starts

sudo update-rc.d office_service defaults

  • start the service for first time  - /etc/init.d/office_service start
  • Check the service by following command

telnet localhost 8100

  hope this helps !!
