I have done the configuration of the dynamics webclient and have tested it on the server and it works. However, I been trying to connect the dynamics via the webclient on a difference computer and it is not going through. I have used the following url: http://servername:8080/DynamicsNAV90/webclient
What am I missing. Your feedback will be appreciated.
Check Firewall settings on Server and client. Also antivirus settings. Check windows eventlog for detailled error messages.
Is the different computer is in same domain or connected to that domain using VPN and all.
Check the firewall settings , check if the same user added in domain or try to add to ip of server in host file and then check
What configuration have you done or followed ?
1. Check if port 8080 is open (Don't assume its open).
2. How do you connect your another computer ( LAN / Wifi).
3. Are you using external firewall, if yes then have you allowed port 8080 through.
4. Are you able to ping the server ?
Find Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web service and check it out. It should be started.
Try open Web-client locally on the server where Dynamics NAV Web service runs. Use url http://localhost:8080/DynamicsNAV90/webclient
If you can't, then show the error, please.
I just completed the setup of the Webclient for my installation. There were two issues that I had to work with.
First, if you are attempting to access dynamics from outside of your local network (the internet) you may need to add a forwarding of a sub domain to your internet site. Our web site was hosted on an outside server (similar to godaddy), so I had to log in there and created the sub domain "dynamics.yourwebsite.com". Then I had to redirect all the traffic for that subdomain back to the ip address of our router. You may just need to deal with the service (DNS) that sends your traffic to your router if you host your own site.
Second, we already had port 8080 directed to another one of our three servers so we change and used another port, You may have 8080 free, we did not. I then had the router direct all that traffic to the IIS for our dynamics.
It sounds like a firewall/av issue :) Try to ping the server by IP and verify that the ports are opened. If you post a screen capture with the error it might help :)
The webclient works on the server but not on other computers
I will do that and revert. thanks so much
Agreed with Miguel. This seems to be a issue with firewall.
How do i configure the firewall and should this be done on the server or the client computer. Many thanks and on standby
Try to put the IP in hosts file in user computer.
Can you please come again, did not get you clearly.
open the following file: c:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\hosts.
Add the IP of your server
Save the changes.
I have been able to add IP to the server, however, did a port scan using grc scan and realised that 8080 is in a stealth state meaning it is blocked.
Is there a way to unblock the port 8080?
Secondly, I have been trying to attach screen print to my post but finds it difficult as i get error feedback.
Is a way to assist.
Really appreciate your support. On standby
Go to Windows Firewall and add the rule for port 8080
Check following link
You need to go to IIS and then change the binding for the web client.
