How to check connection to HTTP server in ext netwrk from local XI?

Hi guys!

I have a strange issue: I need to send HTTP messages to target host, which is located outside of network, where XI is located. I have problems with sending message to this host - I get TimeoutExeption.

Now, I don't know, whether there is problem on my side, or is it a problem of network. How to check, whether the XI has "hole" in network to reach the target computer?

One more thing, I am also out of network of XI, but can connect to it(XI comp) , so I'm able to run commands.

I asked our network guy for HTTP proxy IP adress, unfortunately, he doesn't know, what it is 😊).

Do u know, is it possible somehow to get this IP?

Thanx a lot!

Olian

    Hi Olian,

    Try to ping the HTTP target host from the XI box.

      Sreenivas, ping might not work. They are mainly blocked by firewalls. It is not a good way to be sure about the HTTP connection availability,

    Hi,

    You could telnet the target host from the calling system. This could give you an idea about whether the port is blocked and is behind firewall. Command for the same would be

    telnet host port

    you should see a blank window if the connection is successful.

    Thanks,
