Getting error ICM_HTTP_CONNECTION_FAILED when retrieving employee photo


We are using the who's who service in SAP ESS to retrieve the employee photo.


This function used to be working fine until we change our firewall recently.

Can anybody help please ?

    then you should check, if your firewall now blocks the requests to your content repository server, that you use for the photo-storage (transaction OAC0).

    • sm,

      yes, all of your clients have to reach the content server, because the portal provides them with a http-link to the content server only.

      the hostname and port are defined in OAC0. Doubleclick the entry that is used for your photos. On the next screen there are the used "HTTP-Server" and "Port" entries.

      In such scenarios, maybe its useful to use reverse proxies. In that case your firewall could be maintained easier.
