Browse/Capture on Content Administration/Portal Content -EP6

We're having problems trying to capture live (external) internet content from the portal when we create

URL iViews.

In EP5 the tool used to be called iView catcher and it allows you to get a portion of content from the web like a table (stock/weather). This functionality is not working in the portal and I am not sure if this is due to the privacy/partnership issues, but at the same rate, i see the functionality exists on EP 6.0 via

Content Administration/Portal Content. Right click on the folder and select New -> iView and from the list of templates select URL iView, enter name and id on the next screen. On the following screen you can enter a URL and we tested and then press the Browse/Capture button and the pop up window is not able to access this website.

The website does not appear in the Browse tab but if you save it does work when previewing the iView (example is iView url_test). However we just want to capture a part of the website and under the Capture tab it just says 'null' instead of the website(url) appearing.

Is this a known problem with EP(SP7), and perhaps fixed with SP9?

Any help would be appreciated.

    We have the same Problem. The iView catcher is not available in EP6. So did you find a solution?

      The iView catcher is available in EP6 start from SP9 and on (NW04).

      If you select to create new iView - URL iView and then you choose browse / capture.

      If it doesn't work well, you probably have problems with either proxy settings or your windows domain authentication.

      Good luck,
