RE: WDSc Update - Still Having Problems



fixed

Group,

Ok.  Problem solved.  Apparently someone installed a firewall on my PC without 
letting me know and that is what redirected update requests to the corporate 
firewall which in turn would not let it out.  

All these bits and pieces...Gotta Love It!

Douglas,

Do you normally have to do any special configuration for your PC
applications to access the Internet?  Can you send me a screen shot of what
you see if you run "ipconfig" from a Windows Commnad Prompt (you might want
to send that to me directly.)

Thanks.

Group,

I posted this several weeks ago...

> I had a problem show up a week or two ago when I started my update
manager, an error window
> would appear and tell me that a problem had occurred and that it was
unable to access the ibm
> update site.  When I looked at the details the text was "Error parsing
site stream. [The XML

site.]"

It is still a problem but I do have some more information about it.

127.0.0.1          anonymous         Java1.3.1         -
www3.sotware.ibm.com           -           80          -           305
http         TCP         GET

There is more and I can post it if necessary but the network security guys
first question was why is it going to a loop-back address?  The next
question why was it going out anonymous?  Where is this configured and how
can I change it

This is getting to be beyond frustrating.  If I can't have a reliable
method of updating and keeping the product stable, why am I using it?  This
is costing me more time and effort and showing very little return for that
investment.  I have spent many hours reviewing fixes and suggestions and if
I can't get something worked out soon I won't be able to continue and will
have to abandon WDSc as a development tool.
