iNomads / Re: %inomads'upload_file() times out
« on: July 08, 2022, 01:24:25 PM »
Thanks!   This worked.
I put SET_PARAM 'IZ' in my START_UP and it solved the problem.  Is there another place that is preferable to set the parameter?

iNomads / %inomads'upload_file() times out
« on: July 07, 2022, 09:23:09 PM »
Is there a limit to the size file the %inomads'upload_file() function can handle?  I've got my upload working well with small files.  I've tested with 2K file size with success.   The actual files the user will be uploading are generally 22-25MB Excel files.  This does not seem to be a very large file, considering that the upload attempts are either on the same server where EZWEB and iNOMADS are running or are connected with a 300Mb connection.  Whenever I try the larger file it sits for a long time then says that it cannot make a connection.  I then find that EZWEB is no longer running and I have to restart it.
Any idea what might be happening here or where I can begin to look for a cause.  The weird part, to me, is that the issues seems to kill EZWEB.

The server is Windows running PXPlus 2021 Web. 

Thanks!  - Phil

Web Services / EZWeb /ShutDown?xxxxxxx-yyyyyyyy not found
« on: January 29, 2022, 09:46:47 AM »
I'm running latest version of PVXPlus with both Pro and Wayfarer licenses, installed in separate folders.  I'm running the EZWeb server from the Wayfarer instance and it's all working well, except that I cannot use the ShutDown directive from a web browser. 
When I try
I get the response:
[font=courier]Not Found
The requested URL /ShutDown can not be provided by this server.

I've tried all sorts of variations with no success.  The documentation says to use the 8 digit serial number, but my serial numbers are all 6 digits, unless I use the SSN value, in which case they are much longer.  I get the feeling that I'm missing something.  Since EZWeb is being started in background from task scheduler, I cannot use the system tray to shut it down, so I end up have to kill the process on the server.

Thanks for any help!

Registration and Setup / Re: License seats requirement calculation

Thanks Mike,
I believe that answers my questions.

Registration and Setup / License seats requirement calculation
« on: January 07, 2022, 03:28:50 PM »
I'm trying to determine how many licenses of which type to purchase, but am not sure how they are consumed.

We have multiple processes that run from Task Scheduler every day.  They are all started on the server and run as the same user.  I believe these will altogether use 1 license.

We have iNOMADS running from IIS.  The usage is very light, typically only one person logs on to the website at a time.  I think this will use 2 wayfarer licenses.  At what point do we need to bump up the number of Wayfarer licenses? Is it just a matter of of performance because a single license can only handle one task at a time?

Right now we're using Pro licenses for development and to run the scheduled tasks, but we do not use PVXPlus SQL nor ODBC, so I think we can accomplish the same thing with Base licenses.  Is there a way to determine exactly what features we will loses if we move to Base licenses instead of Pro?  Will the Base license support the Wayfarer licenses running iNOMADS?

Thanks - Phil

Solution:  Tino Vanholst confirmed for me that I must have two EZWeb instances running.  One will handle Webster+ and the other will handle the iNOMADS transactions.  I will start them both from task scheduler in background mode (-BKG) as the same user account, which will result in only one user seat being taken, hopefully.
Once both are running, I can add menu items in Webster+ to reference the URL for the iNOMADS transaction as:  http://localhost:8888?txid=mytransaction

I have tested this and it works beautifully.

I believe that this question is answered.  Tino Vanholst has confirmed that I cannot use the Webster+ EZWeb instance to run iNOMADS transactions, but I can run a second EZWeb instance to process the iNOMADS.  If I start them both in background mode from the task scheduler using the same user account, they will apparently not take up two users.  This will suffice for my purposes.

Hey Mike, when I create a Webster+ menu option and try to use URL to run an iNOMADS transaction, I am unable to do it.  If I have Webster+ installed to use port 8088, I am completely unable to run iNOMADS transaction on that instance of EZWeb.  I would expect to be able to do:  http://localhost:8088?txid=FEShipping, but that does not work.  It simply takes me to the Webster+ default page.  I can run that transaction if I use an EZWeb instance not tied to Webster+.   What is the secret for using an iNOMADS transaction from Webster+?  Do I have to have two separate EZWeb instances running?

I have an iNOMADS transaction which successfully runs an application.  If I start EXWeb on port 8888 I can run the program from my browser:  localhost:8888?txid=FEShipping

I have installed Webster+ using the default port 8088.  Webster+ seems to work fine, but I cannot figure out how to get it to run txid=FEShipping.  I tried just running it the same way I would with EZWeb and no Webster+ (I.E. localhost:8088?txid=FEShipping) but that only takes me to the Webster+ default screen.  I have tried all sorts of combinations using Program and URL in the Webster+ menu with no success.

Any examples would be very helpful, I think.

Thanks - Phil

Thanks Mike.  That is what I had hoped to be able to do.  REST will work much better in the long run, but it's not trivial for some of our stuff.  I will carry on with my new plans.

Webster Plus / Can Webster+ menu launch iNOMADS programs

I've got several programs that a customer has been running via iNOMADS for a while from a fairly ugly start page using some convoluted security.  While duplicating the system to a new customer, I started looking at Webster+ to be the front end and controller, giving better flexibility and built-in security.  The project is on a short timeline so I do not have the option of rewriting all the programs to work with REST.  I saw that Webster+ can use the TX=### so I thought, perhaps, that I can mix in iNOMADS with the new Webster programs while we, potentially, re-write what is necessary.  Is this possible?

Thanks - Phil
