Distributed Testing - Unable to setup a host - Invalid address message

I am trying to setup distributed testing using test complete . The slave machines which I want to setup as hosts cannot be searched in the "Address" column of host setup grid. If I manually type in the hostname and click on verify , I get an invalid address error.

 

I have done all the steps mentioned in below link for distributing testing requirements but there was no success. Can someone please help me with this.

Did you try to find machines by ip-address? Can you successfully ping them?

Yes, I tried with the IP address as well. I can successfully ping the machine but while setting it up as a host in Test complete, I get invalid address error. I have tried with both hostname and IP address.

It almost sounds like the firewall is blocking the requests.  Double check your firewall settings on your machines as per http://support.smartbear.com/testcomplete/docs/general-info/configuring/windows-firewall.html

Why automate?  I do automated testing because there's only so much a human being can do and remain healthy.  Sleep is a requirement.  So, while people sleep, automation that I create does what I've described above in order to make sure that nothing gets past the final defense of the testing group.
