Can I set a longer connection timeout for Bamboo remote agents?

I'm setting up some new remote agents in a distant location from the main Bamboo server and I'm running into errors when the agent starts like this:

INFO   | jvm 1    | 2013/02/19 11:32:55 | 2013-02-19 11:32:55,275 INFO [WrapperSimpleAppMain] [AgentContext] Requesting fingerprint, url:
INFO   | jvm 1    | 2013/02/19 11:33:25 | Exiting due to fatal exception.
INFO   | jvm 1    | 2013/02/19 11:33:25 | org.apache.commons.httpclient.ConnectTimeoutException: The host did not accept the connection within timeout of 30000 ms

Perhaps there are some firewall issues or something. But I would like to first test whether all I need is longer time to connect. Is there a configuration file somewhere where I can increase the connection timeout to something more than 30 seconds? I grep'd around and didn't find anything, but perhaps there is a key I don't know about that I can set in the wrapper.conf file.

Brent - try looking in the bamboo.cfg.xml file.

There is a field "" and "". They both have URLs with parameters that affect the agents, especially the first parameter which has the URL parameter :




You can tweak these to get the desired timing. Obviously, after changing the values you need to restart Bamboo before attempting to restart the agents.

THere is also some Atlassian docs here that can affect agent performance and timings :
