I have answered "Windows Azure target machine actively refused connection when using emulator" on Azure Caching in a rather unruly manner and a moderator deleted it. I've taken the time to improve it by adding more information about my proposed solution and linking to alternative solutions I've found while I was having the same problem.

I would kindly ask a moderator to undelete it (I can't vote for undeletion and I am unsure about flagging it). If it isn't possible, can I have an explanation of what was wrong about my answer so I can improve?

Thanks in advance.

    Why didn't you flag it as a duplicate if the original answer was an answer to another SO question?

  • @Bart thanks for pointing out the question, I haven't found it my search. However I think that this question is not a mere duplicate, since I'm asking an explanation about what could be wrong about my answer.

  • @edymtt Seems that has been resolved now as well with the answer below. ;) Great edit to your answer by the way.

  • @casperOne If I understand your question correctly, the question was not a duplicate (the error message was different), but the solution was the same. As the moderators noticed, my answer was not of high quality.

Basically, your answer should be self-contained, even if it's a link to a different answer. This applies to any link-only answers, not just those with external links.

Your answer looks much, much better now, so I've undeleted it.

  • Thank you very much for your explanation -- I'll take into consideration for my next answers.
