Re: Connections to servers

Hi Jeff,

yes, I can access the file trough the browser and I have a network proxy. I am also trying to understand how to work it around. But what if we download some of the "static" databases on our machines ?

Hi Riccardo,

I just downloaded IDV version 1.2 on my Mac OS X 10.4 laptop and I see that I am not able to connect to any of the data servers, i.e. Worl Wind and others. Do you have hints on how to fix this problem ?

The WorldWind display control just accesses the data via http requests to our web server. Why don't you try to access one of the data files directly through your web browser to see if it is a network problem: WorldWindow.Earth/Placenames/Countries/0000_0000.wwp

If you can access this via your web browser perhaps you have a network proxy? If you do and you cannot work around the proxy get back with us and we'll figure out how to configure a proxy (there is a Java runtime command line way of
doing this but right now I cannot seem  to get it to work).
