Web client issue
on Dec 22, 2011 at 9:16:56 pm

Hi all,

Another question -

So I have all my green lights on with the CatDV Server Control Panel. (6.5.0)

When I type http://localhost:8080/catdv/index.html into the browser, I get a HTTP Status 404 - /catdv/index.html error.

Any ideas of what I might had done wrong?

I have attached the error log here:
INFO: The APR based Apache Tomcat Native library which allows optimal performance in production environments was not found on the java.library.path: /Applications/CatDV Control Panel.app/Contents/Resources/Java:/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/JavaApplicationLauncher.framework/Resources:.:/Library/Java/Extensions:/System/Library/Java/Extensions:/usr/lib/java

Once again, the HTML Publisher rears it's head.

Sorry that one got you. Since it's come up, I'll chime in on this one.

The "Web Client" is now the main web server version of CatDV. It's the one most folks are talking about when they speak of CatDV and the web. This has a ready to go interface out of the box and can send and receive data to and from the CatDV Server, it is directly connected.

The "HTML Publisher" although it's named as if it'd be the way to share the CatDV data over "HTML"... is no longer the main way we use CatDV over the web. It's an older framework that requires a good bit of JSP web publishing knowledge to set up a workable interface and permissions. It's effective and powerful but usually only used by folks who have web teams or programmers to set it up and manage it. It only publishes the data out from CatDV, it is not interactive, in that you cannot edit the metadata in the HTML Publisher.

HTML Publisher is mentioned in the docs and web site from Squarebox so they are often mixed up.

Hope this clears things up a bit for folks.

First, is Tomcat running? Does http://localhost:8080 give you the Apache Tomcat home page (with an orange cat and a red feather icons)?

Secondly, are you using the old Live HTML Publisher or the new CatDV Web Client product? To install Live HTML Publisher you need to copy catdv.war to your Tomcat webapps folder. To install the Web Client you need to copy catdv2.war. The server installer and control panel automatically installs catdv2.war but not catdv.war, so most likely you just need to copy that file over.

Hello all,

Well, here's where I am with this...

1. Confirmed that I can run local.host on my Mac server for Tomcat and I can see the web client using http://localhost:8080/catdv2/WebClient.html on the server and I can see the web client on another computer on my domain by using http://10.0.1.22:8080/catdv2/WebClient.html

2. Have created a new A record for the subdomain catdv.bbwcg.com and have confirmed forwarding my external IP with my internal IP for the Mac server with my ISP. Also, made sure port 8080 is active and it is set with TCP and UDP. You can see this if you ping catdv.bbwcg.com it resolves to 72.29.120.117

3. When I test using my iPad (3G), I am using http://catdv.bbwcg.com:8080/catdv2/WebClient.html It times out...

Any ideas? I feel like I am soooo close! Am learning a lot!

"2. Have created a new A record for the subdomain catdv.bbwcg.com and have confirmed forwarding my external IP with my internal IP for the Mac server with my ISP.

After reading this, one, I'm about 100% sure it's not CatDV related. I notice that you discussed mapping ports with your ISP. Do you not a=have a router inside your network that you admin yourself? Make sure, because a lot of LAN's have an internal router as well as the one that's provided by the ISP and that may not be routing 8080 through. Also, I tend to start with the ports wide open as a DMZ to the server and then turn ports off as we trim down. That way it's easier to test and confirm that my routes are set up correctly. (You can log in to other services that way, for instance.)

Are you the network admin yourself or is there someone else who's doing this with you? Is this a small LAN or are there hundreds of users? All of these things will determine how you proceed. I'm assuming this is a smaller setup from reading your site so if there's not a full time network admin you may have to do some trial and error.

The steps you are taking seem correct but I suspect there may be either another router or a wrong setting in the one you have. I'd check to make sure that your ISP's router is indeed routing the IP traffic to that box and that there's not a wireless router or something also on the LAN that might be confusing things.

Simplify... and go from there, or call in some outside help. If you can see the Web Client in-house but not outside this isn't a CatDV issue.

Yes, sounds like a firewall or routing issue. As Bryson says, your ISP may be blocking incoming requests on non-standard ports even if your router is set up to forward the requests.
