Chef: connection refused for cookbook upload

view story

http://serverfault.com – Be gentle, I'm new to chef, trying to get my environment set up and have some new recipes to upload to my new chef server. I'm able to do some commands, and I was able to knife bootstrap the new node, so I'm pretty sure my configuration is correct. It appears that it's trying to upload to localhost when I turn on verbose logging. I have a server set in my knife.rb, and I also tried specifying a server in the knife command with -s, to no avail. $ knife cookbook upload -a Uploading base [0.1.0] Uploading dovecot [0.1.0] Uploading postfix [0.1.0] /opt/chef/embedded/lib/ruby/1.
