Server status offline

I have been trying to get ifolder working for a few days now and I keep
getting server status offline. I had no issues during install and I am able
to get to http://1.1.1.1/simias10/Simias.asmxpage.

I have attached a screen shot.

OES2 (Linux)

SLES10SP1

Thanks

During the install you had to specify hostname (internal and external).
Make sure that those are valid hostnames or at least put them in the
host files of the servers and workstations so that they can be resolved.

Re: Server status offline

Hi folks,

I'm having a similar problem with a successful installation, but the server showing an offline status.

I am running OpenSuse 11.1, iFolder 3.7.2 server, no LDAP. I can access the admin and web portals, but the server is shown as offline in the server admin screen and I have not been able to connect an iFolder client.

The hosts file shows the iFolder server name, and I can connect locally to the ports using that hostname.

Any ideas as to what I have missed?

Thanks,

Jay

Re: Server status offline

Hi folks,

I think I might have an idea after re-reading the instructions (!).

You must specify the DNS name of the server as iFolder
Public URL to connect the client to the server using a DNS name. In this
case, users need not remember all the IP addresses they are provisioned
to. A single DNS name can map them to the respective server IP based
on their location

I'm currently using dynamic DNS on this machine, and while it was fine with previous versions of iFolder, I think a bit of trial and error might allow an accurate lookup.

Anyone else dynDNS-ing their iFolder server?

I'm using DynDNS with my own setup.. the only difference is that my router is handling the changes in ip and forwards the incoming requests through NAT.. No issues with that setup.

You say the hosts file shows the iFolder server name, this is listed on the correct ip when a ip change happens? Do you have multiple network interfaces setup on the server?

Willem

Re: Server status offline

Hi Willem,

Thanks for the reply. I tried going back to a very simple installation, and up it came. I think the issue was related to me trying to be too clever with the public and private URLs.

Re: Server status offline

Hello,

Sorry for resurrecting a post from last month, but I'm encouraged that others have been able to connect to their ifolder server using DynDns account.

Would you mind telling me what you did to get this working? What do you put in the ip address of the server in the ifolder client?

Thanks in advance for any advice you may give.
