You will get this message even when a connection is made. It's the
lines following this that indicate a problem.

Not to sound overly picky, but you mention "contacting the botslave" -
it is actually the botslave that contacts the master when the slave
starts. This affects any sort of firewall rules you may have on the
slave and master, since the master has to listen for incoming

What sort of system is the master running on, and can you telnet to
port 9989 from the slave machine?
