Forum Thread: After Using Meterpreter Persistence on Victim, Always Stuck on Sending Stage?

I am using my desktop at another location to try and get persistence working. I started the meterpreter session, ran the persistence, it installed, successfully, said something about installing to the registry and stuff and then took me back to meterpreter.

I did it using port 443 and my external IP. and I was listening on that same port, and when I turned on my desktop, it says sending stage, but never connects to the meterpreter session. Any idea why? It does connect on port 443 as if i double click my payload it does connect. So neither isp is blocking it, the desktop has no AV, so not sure. Any ideas?

I pasted below what the meterpreter persistence command did when I ran it.
