On my devstudio workstation, I can run http://myipaddress:8080/ibi_ap...x=CCM&IBIAPP_app=tsi and the fexs (some have drilldowns) will run fine. But it wont run from another workstation, even with the actual ip. On the devstudio w/s, it will work with both the ip as well as 'localhost'. I wanted to show the progress to internal client without creating a whole application around it for now. Can this run from another w/s, same network?

Could you not remote-connect to your PC from where ever you are and demo from there?

Sure, but I was planning on sending the url so the internal client can look at it first on their own.

Are there restrictions between PC's in your network ?.

Can you get to the WebServer at all ?

If not, you may have to talk to your network admin.

The problem appears to be that you are doing development in a local environment, meaning that you are using a web server such as Apache that is running locally on your pc. That is why you can use your ip address or localhost. If that is the case, you will not be able to run it from any other pc until it is deployed to a different web server. Your only option would be as BlueZone suggests in using a remote connection or LiveMeeting or something similar. (Also, the license for DevStudio does not allow for others to access your local WF server to run reports. There may actually be something in the configuration that checks to see if the request is only internal.)

Checkout TeamViewer as a remote application... It's great, and thin, when someone is on the receiving end...

Interesting,

I just tested my own devstudio install from the PC next to me and it connected and reported OK.

I still think it may be a security issue, perhaps a Firewall somewhere windows or otherwise.

It still is not allowed per the DevStudio license. If you could do that, why would anyone need to buy a WF server license?

I asked my self that same question, when I worked at IB, The WF server uses a different licence code, and different things are enabled/disabled. You also don't get the Web Client as well.

As usual, the licence may not allow(I had a read of the agreement, mind numbing, couldn't find it), but does not restrict.

This still does not answer the question, which is why can't someone connect to his PC via HTTP.

As a minimum the Web Server should work.
