I am using the ant-contrib to call Ant on a remote machine, which then runs an ant build on the remote machine.

If I set failOnError=true in the local machine's build.xml then the build fails IF the remote machine cannot be contacted - i.e. the port number is wrong or the remote ant server isn't running on it.

However, if the Ant build on the remote machine fails, the local machine still reports success, which means I cannot (easily) detect the build result…

Is it suppoed to behave this way?
