I have my DMS running in a network that navigates through a Proxy Server, is there a way to configure it in the DMM and SnS. I have seen the option in DMPs but not in the servers.


I need it so that I can publish web pages and RSS.


Thanks!

The DMM & SnS cannot be configured for Proxy use.



This is a known issue.


Check out:

----------

CSCte67952 - DMD:  RSS will not work after upgrade to 5.2


Symptom:

--------

The RSS ticker is not showing some content after upgrading to 5.2.


This is because DMD in version 5.2 uses Flash to display the RSS ticker  

And the Flash 9 and 10 player has built in security to not allow content

from another domain.


This security feature is blocking the content.


Workaround:

-----------

There are several options available:


1: Only use RSS feeds from sites that allow cross site scripting.


2: Use a service line "Yahoo Pipes" service that acts as a proxy. This

   will result in a a new URL that can be used in the DMD, bypassing

   any cross-site scripting.


Additional Note:

----------------

If you use the standard RSS feed in the Signage Design tool, it will work

with any RSS feed you have and you don't need a crossdomain policy file.

Cross Domain refers only to Adobe Flash Player and the ability to read

content from other domains. Its a security issue


As an example:


If your SWF file is hosted on www.cisco.com/flash/myflash.swf

And that SWF want to read any content (xml, rss, etc..) from rss.cisco.com/myrss/xml

That is allowed. If that same SWF file tries to access data on www.google.com/somedata.x

ml That would require a crossdomain.xml at cisco.com/crossdomain.xml that

lists google.com  This allows the Flash player to access content at google.com
