    I was using ant-contrib to pass my parameter to an remote ant server to execute some task but its not working for me

    when used just rant i was able to connect to remote ant server and execute some task, but as i wanted to pass parameter to my remote target i moved to ant-contrib and  changed my code as shown below but whenever i run my client its giving me ""

    Please help me with sample source code to how to do this

    here is my code

    <remoteant machine="${}"
          <runant dir="${bp.remoteserver.xml}"
             <property name="env_name" 
                                                value="${env_name}" /

      i'm assuming this is just a typo, but you're not closing the <property> element.  In any case, this is not enough information for me to work with.  I need to see a small isolated case with the server script, and the client script.

      yeah that was typo

      my case my client side code is as shown in my first posting the server side is just echo some message to output file , lets assume my client calls the server target "init" then my server side target would be

      <target name="init" depends="path">
              <echo message="${env_name}} got" file="/home/wasadmin/tiersbuild/logs/output.txt" />

      so whats happening is i'm getting

      Can you give me any working examples if you have?

      Hi Matt linger,

      I think i should give mroe information on this.

      1. what i did is i downloaded Download
   and extracted them then copied the ant-contrib.jar file to my ant.home lib in client
      (windows) aswell as server(solaris)

      2. When i tried without ant-contrib remoteant using rant it was working fine for me , then i got this request to make it parameter passable that time i did it with ant-contrib now i'm getting this problem

      Hi Matt

      Just found something,

      when i added <antserver port="1234"/> within my<remoteant>.. stuff and tried to connect back my local host itself (i.e making both client and server in my local)
      the remoteant stuff working fine.

      But when i tried to connect to the other machine(i.e other than local) the antserver things just hangs there the control is not coming back ... i know this how it works even after adding <shutdown> task athe end of <remoteant> the program behaves in same manner. it just hangs there the control is not coming back

      Please advise
