I am having my webserver in another location. Not on Local Area Network. Can i load test my webserver using WCAT tool?
Currently i am specifying ip address for server name in Settings file. Just want to know if there is any way to load test a webserver which is in remote location?

It is. You specify the address of your web server when you start the controller. Here is an example:
"C:\program files\wcat\wcctl.exe" -t wcat_script.ubr -c 1 -s
www.mysite.com -v 5 -u 400
Hope this helps

Has anyone gotten this work? I only get "unable to resolve server address" or "failed to connect to the specified server on remote port 80" depending on what I set for server. I'm using wcat 6.3.
I hacked around this simply by hosting a dummy site on the same server @ port 80 b.c. it seems that no matter what port you put in your configs wcat will check whether server has port 80 open. After this initial check i was able to proceed..
P.S.(currently i am at level where you get bad hostname error even when in every request i send the same host header as original web browser - so must be HTTP.SYS -> i.e. httpcfg set urlacl i hope (as im hosting in a virtual machine under another machine
