[Fusioninventory-user] Unable to find agent to run this job

Update ..

I have found where the logs go for both glpi and fusioninventory, and I see
no issues of relevance being displayed in the logs ..

[Fri Jan 18 12:26:27 2013][debug] FusionInventory unified agent for UNIX,
Linux and MacOSX (2.2.7)
[Fri Jan 18 12:26:27 2013][debug] Configuration directory:
[Fri Jan 18 12:26:27 2013][debug] Data directory:
[Fri Jan 18 12:26:27 2013][debug] Storage directory:
[Fri Jan 18 12:26:27 2013][debug] Lib directory:

But the situation remains that:
-- the agent refuses to listen to the port defined (ie, 62354)  but is
running in daemon mode
-- now, from within the glpi plugin, the system consistently claims that I
have not configured an agent that is usable in netdiscovery or netinventory

I should also point out that I switched from a previous debian distro
install for the agent, into a cpan installation ..
Consequently, my  storage directory changed from /var/lib/fusioninventory
to /usr/local/var/fusioninventory .. But I cannot establish how this could
cause a break in communications between the agent and the server (which are
on the same host) ..

So, it does seem as if there is a clear break in communications, but I am
not exactly sure why ..

Possible options:
-- switch agent back to cron mode, and see if that helps
-- keep googling to see if one can ascertain exactly what config settings
are required to ensure http daemon is launched by the agent to listen on
specified port
-- follow code to see how the http element is invoked and why it is failing
