"Real world" type of (corporate) environment
I am trying to set up a system on which users (end-users type) could connect, after downloading and installing a WL client depending on their local desktop and operating system. (later we'll use JWS). Currently there's no special authentication set up (later it will use the corporate-wide LDAP server).
Server is: Solaris 10 with WL version nightly 9-May-2008, on 4100 type of box, 2x dual core, 4 MB RAM, ..
The WL server is inside the corporate intranet, and end users will mostly access it from the internet through the corporate VPN. (there's a standard corporate proxy).
Both the voice bridge and the WL server seem to launch properly.
Could you help with the following issues, related to the clients:
The server is in a machines room, without attached 3D-enabled monitor, and the "owner" of the WL Solution is (far) remote all of the time. Having read that only the Server Master Client could start the core shared apps (conf room, team room,.. ones) it seems to create a real problem as this Master Client cannot be used through SSH/X11 isn't it !? Any trick ?
Typical end users would not like to have to edit and configure client-side param files. For this reason, like such a future typical user I installed the same version of WL (May 8) on the typical future remote laptop that will be used, ie the classical Toshiba Tecra M5 running under WinXP. No configuration done for the time being, counting upon the only parameterization of the login screen.
As username and password I enter something (as there's no authentication set up), as Server I enter this corporate WL server address: 18.104.22.168 (don't know whether a port is needed ?).
In the Network tab concerning the Local IP address I tried all proposed entries from the list, including the 127.0.0.1 and the actual laptop IP address in the SWAN.
In the same tab I also tried the 3 proposed items: no proxy/system proxy/corp-http-proxy
But .. I always get "Login error. Please try again." on the login screen, while the same message comes again and again on the client window log:
[java] 9 mai 2008 18:41:48 org.jdesktop.lg3d.wonderland.scenemanager.AssetD
[java] FIN: AssetDB SystemDir = C:\Documents and Settings\mdenis\.wonderlan
[java] Login Failed : null
What's wrong typically there ? Which type of selections are needed to make it work on the fly ?
Is the one from:
Here again we would not like to force end users to look at finding a way to switch drivers.
MANY THANKS IN ADVANCE !
