I/O exception (org.apache.http.conn.HttpHostConnectException)

I am getting following error while executing logstash conf file. And i want to connect the server with protocal https to monitor the IBM wepsphere logs.But i don't have any option in protocol for https.

org.apache.http.impl.execchain.RetryExec execute
INFO: I/O exception (org.apache.http.conn.HttpHostConnectException) caught when processing request to {}->http://my_address.com:9495: Connect to my_address.com:9495 [my_address.com] failed: Connection refused: connect org.apache.http.impl.execchain.RetryExec execute

Providing your config would he helpful.

However it looks like you don't have access to that host and port, can you telnet to test?
