CD One 2nd Edition on Win NT 4.0

I have CD One 2nd Edition installed on a Windows NT 4.0 Server with SP 5. When i connect to the Cisco Works 2000 Server the Login Manger doesn´t appear in my browser, so i can´t login. I´ve checked the settings and requirements of my IE 5.5 browser every thing looks fine. There are no error messages on the server or on the client! Any Idea?

HW: Compaq ML 370, Dual Processor, 256 MB RAM, 20 GB Hard drive

SW: WIN NT 4.0 SP5 english, IE 5.5 SP2, CD One 2nd Edition



Re: CD One 2nd Edition on Win NT 4.0

How are yuo trying to connect to the CW2K server, using localhost?. Make sure that you use the ip address of the server and not localhost to connect, htp://:port#. Second, CD-One2nd Edition only supports IE 5.0 or 5.01. 5.5 is not supported. Third, you must log in as an Administrator local to the machine (no pseudo user or admin equivalent login) when installing the CW2K, otherwise the install will not work. Lastly, 2nd Edition is very old now, considering the fact that 5th Ed is already out for a while. You may want to move to the latest version.

I have the same problem. According to your tip i have uninstalled IE5.5 and have installed IE5.0 but problem has remained.

Hi there,

I had similar problems when I have started with CISCO Works 4th Edition.

There are a couple of things to check.

- What are the results of a DNS lookup (forward and reverse) on the server?

Start a sniffer and have a look what happens at the server when you try to login

with a client: The server must be able to resolve the clients name to an IP

address and must be able to resolve the clients ip address from it's name.

Forward and Reverse DNS lookups MUST work. Otherwise you run in

endless timeouts.

- US-english server installed? The only thing that is allowed to be non-english

is the keyboard layout.

- Check proxy settings at the browser ("no proxy") is OK. Don't use this

automatic setting of IE.

- What about firewalls between your client and the server that block specific


- Stop and restart JrunProxyService in the WINDOWS service panel and try

to login again.

- If your server has poor hardware resources: Reboot the machine and

let it works for 24 hours without loging in!

- Sounds strange but works sometimes: Contact the server with it's

DNS name or IP address and if no login prompt appears after one

minute or so start a second session from another client while being

online with the first one. :-)

If you follow the installation instructions STRICTLY and if you have a

working DNS server running in your net and if CW has been installed BEFORE

the server's and client's names and IP addresses have been added to

the DNS servers database AND if the installation has brought NO SINGLE

error or even a warning AND if you have only ONE JAVA JRE installed on

your client .... (ufff) then CW will work.

Bye. Thomas.
