I am trying to establish a connection using XenCenter 6.0 to a server where XenServer 6.0 is installed, but it gives me the following error message:

Unable to connect to server ''.
The connection was refused.
Check that XenServer is configured correctly on ''.

When I run XenCenter on another PC, it automatically disconnects from the same server after 10-15 seconds every time I connect.

Can you access the management interface IP over SSH? If you can get a shell, would you mind adding the configuration of iptables to this question please? – plasmid87 Nov 7 '13 at 12:44

Have you tried updating XenCenter to 6.1? I had this same issue before using older builds.

This problem happened due to ip conflicts.
Resolved the issue by correcting ip setting.
