    Hi Mone,

    Thanks for your reply.

    My environment is that the demo is running in external web server on same machine.

    Under this environment, I can't use IP address directly for accessing from Internet, right?

    Sorry, you can't.

    If you can access the client machine's hosts file you can map there your IP to something like www.mysite.com.

    Moreover note that use two server (web & LS) on the same machine is not compatible with Opera browser: http://www.lightstreamer.com/vb/showthread.php?t=28

    Unable to Bind

    Please help! I have been following this and a few other threads concerning the binding of domain and host. And have been unsuccessful getting a test environment up and running.

    I am successful when accessing Lightstreamer directly on port 8080, but my setup fails when I try with webpages on my webserver.

    I have Windows XP
    I have Lightstreamer running on port 8080.
    I have IE as my client.
    I have Netbeans with Tomcat as my webserver.

    Lightstreamer config I have.
    Code:
    <http_server name="laptop">
    My HOSTS file contains
    Code:
    192.168.1.88        mycompany.net
    My computer is called 'laptop' with domain suffix 'mycompany.net'

    My HTML code contains
    Code:
        page.context.setDomain( "mycompany.net" ); // (set the domain when deploying on web server)
    
        page.onEngineCreation = function( engine )
    	{
            engine.context.setDebugAlertsOnClientError(true); // (set false in production)
            engine.connection.setLSHost( "laptop.mycompany.net" ); // (set the hostname when deploying on web server)
            engine.connection.setLSPort( 8080 ); // (set the port when deploying on web server)
    I look forward to someone pointing out my obvious mistake!

    hi,

    it seems correct, how do you access tomcat (ie which address do you write in the address bar to access your web page)?

    Which browser/s are you testing?

    on a second thought I noticed something (my colleague Dario pointed me on it)

    you say
    the binding of domain and host.
    but you're writing on the "Unable to find the Engine" thread. Which is exactly your problem? Do you see the "unable to find the engine...." message or you can't just connect?

    you wrote in your hosts file
    192.168.1.88 mycompany.net
    and then set the LSHost as laptop.mycompany.net. Are you sure that with such setting you can access your local servers through the laptop.mycompany.net address?
    Note that the name of the http_server element of the lightstreamer conf is just an helper used for logging purposes and has no effect on the system.
