How to provide the Load Generator Path on Scenerio Window


One of our offshore company have a licensed version of Mercury LoadRunner 8.1. They have installed all the components (including Load Generator, Controller, Analysis & Vugen) on a Microsoft Windows 2003 Server(onsite), and have asked us to install the Vugen in our local machines(here in offsite).

All our (onsite & offsite) systems are connected under same network. I've created all the Vuser Scripts in my local machine and to connect it to the server machine to generate the load. In create scenario window, I provided the No. of virtual users and on Load Generator box i provided the IP address of the server where the Load Generator/Controller has been installed. When i tired to connect nothing happened, the connection was not established.

Please let me know the exact process of getting connected to the Load Generator Machine.

It would be great if you could also answer the below queries,

1) What is the path that I need to specify on Load Generator textbox displayed on create scenario window?
2) Do i have to keep the Controller component open in the server machine, before establishing the connection Vugen machine?

Look forward for your favorable response.
