When I am trying to test a connection for default publish or dispatcher flush, I get a connection timeout error. The servers were recently moved to Amazon AWS and initially, i thought it could be because of the security groups/network that may be causing the timeout as both author and publish were on different servers. Then i started to test dispatcher flush setting, as i have a temp webserver running on the same instance as the author and i still got a connection timeout. Here is the error i see in the error.log file on author.
