Oracle question


Hello,

I have set up an Oracle Web Server (3.0 beta) on one of our server machines and when trying to locate the administration page via my browser (Netscape) then everything works just fine, the page comes up. But when I try to specify the same administration-page-URL:

http://hostname:admin_portnumber

on another machine in the same network then I get

"The request did not specify a valid virtual host."

What have I done wrong ? Must I register the server machine's DNS alias somewhere or...?

Thanks for any advice

Bye

Oracle Web Server 3.0 needs the same name of host in the URL
that you give in the installation (also, don't use the IP!).
When you install the Web Server you are asked for a name of
the host (including domain, if you use DNS). Use the SAME
name in all of your clients.
You don't have to register names of clients.

I already know this and I assure that I have done so. The problem is not to get in "physical" contact with the server (I know this because an error page is downloaded to the client from the server, containing the error message "The request did not specify a valid virtual host."). I think that the problem is that the connection from the client to the server demands a special virtual directory setting on the server (?).

Hi,
The problem is with the fire wall. I had the same problem.
Then,the network guys "enabled" the "another machine" to access
the admin port on the web server machine. Try this. Let me know
if you didn't get this done.
