Imatch anywhere on Mac
« on: April 09, 2022, 07:37:38 AM »
I read the faq, and it's close but no cigar.

Using the trial version, I can access the webserver from my PC, however the mac is a different story. The mac would not connect at all using the PC name, so looking at the faq I tried by the webserver IP address. I can connect, and I get the black webserver screen with the Imatch anywhere logo and it says connecting to server.... And it never actually connects. I tired changing the jason file to include the IP address instead of the pc name and that only gives me a white screen. Any ideas?

Mac's and networks are always special.

You need to configure the IP address in the IMatch Anywhere WebViewer config file so the Web Viewer knows where to find the server running IMatch Anywhere:

"imwsUrl": "http://YOUR-PC-NAME:PORT/",

During the installation, the installer configures this entry to match the machine name of the computer on which you install IMWS.
This works out-of-the-box, unless you are using Apple devices which still don't support standard name resolution (PC name => IP address) conventions.

Open the config  file with a text editor and change the imwsUrl to use the IP address instead of YOUR-PC-NAME.

For details, open the IMWS documentation by clicking the Help button in the controller (or pressing F1).
Then click on WebViewer Configuration. This explains where to find the configuration file and how to change it.

Thanks. I don't see the "imwsurl" line in my config file and I don't see it referenced in the help. The only reference to imwsurl is in the reversy proxy section. :-\

Thanks Mario. I did try that, but it must have been late or something. I tried again today and it works :-)
