I have installed oracle 9i and forms10g on my laptop.
When I run report thorugh forms then if internet is available then report runs successfully but if no internet then following error message appears "unable to connect to report server".
Please provide some solution so that i can run reports when i am offline.
I you connect your laptop to a network it goes through DHCP and DNS servers. Without a network connection you have no network IP address. Just use http://127.0.0.1 or http://localhost in your URL and see if this works.
Yes. I agree with automatic IP assign when system comes on network.
I tried localhost and 127.0.0.1 techniqe but it is not working.
Is there any solution when system not on network and want to run report please.
So, if you are connected to the network this works:
and it doesn't when you are not connected?
(note that maybe you have a different port number, not 8889)
You haven't given an answer to my previous question. What is the result of the URL in these two situations?
Installing Developer Suite and running Forms and Reports on your PC should work with 127.0.0.1 (in my experience). If not, you probably have changed some setting.
If everything fails, re-install Developer Suite.
When I run your given url in the presenece of network then it works but when no network then it gives error.
I agree with you that there is need to some thing change in settings but i have no an idea.
