I surfed but I could not get a clear and working answer to this question. I am sorry if it is duplication.
I installed Oracle 10g Express Edition on my PC.
I want to access APEX applications from another PC on the domain (I may need on a workgroup as well) to prove the concept of a normal Client Server environment
Locally application are accessed through URL http://127.0.0.1:8080/apex/f?p=100:1......
I checked from the client machine with the path as it is.
I replaced 127.0.0.1 with the name of the PC and IP address of server to access from the client machine but failed.
I did not find a solution in apex guide.
Can somebody help in this problem.
No special set-up is required for this from APEX side.
Are both the systems ( server and client) are in same network? Can you access one machine from other?
Go to client machine -> Command Prompt -> and ping server_ip. Check the response.
If you receive all the data packets, then there is no issue with network else you need to check with your N/W team.
Are you using Embedded PL/SQL Gateway? If this the case I wonder how its working on 10G database.
Check out following Oracle documentation
I don't remember what method I used while installing. Anyhow In "Manage HTTP access" I change the settings to "Available from local server and remote clients" to no use.
Another thing, my PC IP is not 127.0.0.1. In this case what will be the correct URL to access from client?
I run the command but it says invalid command.
I downloaded OracleXEClient.exe and installed on the client. It installed successfully. but still I cannot access through URL http://myPC_IP:8080/apex/. Although I followed instruction given in the guide.
start command prompt
enter "/ as sysdba" in username and press enter
you will be now logged in as sysdba in to sqlplus and than fire the command.
hope it should work.
you dont need to installed any software in client machine.
I dimly remember that there also may be a windows firewall setting to change, possibly in regards to http requests. Take a look at your windows firewall settings to see if anything looks relevant. Maybe it was adding port 8080 as an allowed exception or something like that? Sorry I don't remember exactly but maybe try that.
