Re: Problem with Firefox in HPUX

Does your application GUI require any special plugins to be installed within firefox or HP-UX? If so are they available for HP-UX and are they installed?

Shalom,

The application appears to use java. You may need the jvm (java virtual machine) plugins available at http://www.hp.com/go/java

This is kind of an RTFM issue, as you appear to have a custom add in to EMS.

Re: Problem with Firefox in HPUX

why not just use a browser on your client(s)? i usually find any browser running on a server rather lacking.

It's maybe blocked by the popup blocker?

Hope this helps!

Re: Problem with Firefox in HPUX

Sorry, but it doesn't make sense to use an HP-UX server for browsing. Why don't you use your windows/linux client machines? You could reach that side from a client machine without problems.

This just says what it is suppose to do, not how it does it.
You can't do anything at the lowest level without a fork/exec or sending a message to a socket.

Using tusc to attach to your application may give you a clue on what system call is failing.
tusc -fp -ea -o tusc.out application-PID

You can kill that tusc if you have collected enough info in tusc.out.
