Am trying to create a new WebFocus Environment by connecting to a remote server(in domainA) through a public IP using developer studio.
Actaully my developerstudio is installed in my workstation(in domainb).But I have been provided separate credentials to access the server.
But after entering all the environment properties like WebServer and Managed Reporting/Reportcaster, while clicking on the show environment I am getting the "Wait Operation Timedout Error".
Can anyone give some tips to resolve this issue.
Am using port 80 and Protocol HTTP to connect to the remote server.
What version of Dev Studio ? and WebFocus on the Server ?
The developer studio version is 5.2 and the server is a lower version it seems Ver 4.3.
Will it be a problem? Because in Sql server we can connect sql server 7 (lower version) from the Query analyzer 2000 (higher version).
Please advise and it is really urgent.
I'm sorry, I can't test that scenario to see if that is a problem. Can you check with IBI support?
Unfortunately, the client layer in 4.3 can't be used to access that WebFOCUS environment directly. So you can't set it up as an Environment.
However, you can access the server via your own DevStudio 5.2 environment. The caveat here is it needs to be running in App Mode, so you'll need to enable app mode on that server - APP ENABLE in the EDASPROF.PRF will take care of that. This might cause other issues for you, if the server was configured to use the old Catalog mode.
To continue, you can configure the server to be accessible from your local environment by setting up an outbound node block in your ODIN.CFG file. Easiest way to do this is via the WebFOCUS Server Console - to start it, go to Start Menu>Programs>WebFOCUS 52 Server>Web Console (your server must be running for this to work!).
Once that's up, use the Remote Servers item on the left-hand menu; in the tree you will select Add, for TCP, give it a node name (your choice, usually I use the physical machine name because it makes it easy to track), for HOST you will need to know the DNS or IP of the server you want to access, port is generally 8100 unless it's different for this particular server, and you'll need to check on how security is set up.
Save that, and then refresh or restart your DevStudio Explorer. When you open your machine's WebFOCUS Environment, the new server as configured will appear under Data Servers. You can now access the folders on that server.
