Issue:
Have a custom jar that is a parser. 
Able to run in ITR from local Workstation. 
When deployed to remote VSE, testing causes a timeout, even though the jar is in the hotDeploy folder of the remote VSE.  
Environment:
DevTest 10.1
Windows 2012
Cause:
We tested with a Workstation from the VSE machine, that had the custom jar applied, using ITR and getting error: 

Exception caught writing property to file: Cannot create parent directory <directory folder>. 

Custom jar was reading from location on remote VSE had no access to as well as the filter on the step writing to a location remote VSE did not have access to.  
Resolution:
Modified custom jar and removed filter, the able to get the response from the JAR file.
