Installation fails with 'unable to connect to remote host' error

The installation fails with the following error message:

http://localhost:50001/ 425 HTTP Error Unable to connect with remote host

The installation utility is unable to connect to the primary IP address of the computer on which the products are being installed. The installation utility uses the primary IP address to connect to the Perl HTTP server that it uses to perform a product installation.

To fix the problem

Launch the installation utility from a command line with the following command: 

setup.exe -host_override hostname 

This option allows you to specify the host name or IP address that you want the installation utility to use on computers with multiple IP addresses. For more details on the -host_override command line option, see Command line options.
