Opening the Setup Page

The FlowForce Server setup page allows you to specify various network settings, including the host and port on which FlowForce Server and FlowForce Web Server should listen. The setup page is regenerated every time you start the FlowForce Web Server service.

 

Prerequisites

The FlowForce Web Server service must be started if it is not running already (see how to start it on Linux, macOS, and Windows).
Make sure the random port address on which FlowForce Web Server was started is not blocked by your firewall.

 

 

To open the setup page (Linux):

Do one of the following:

 

If the Linux machine has a GUI browser, run the flowforceweb.html file in your browser, for example:

 

sudo firefox file:///var/opt/Altova/FlowForceServer2019/flowforceweb.html

 

Open a browser from another machine on the network, and access the URL of the setup page from this browser. You can find the default URL in the flowforceweb.html file located in the application's configuration folder (the URL has the format http://127.0.0.1:34597/setup?key=52239315203).

 

 

To open the setup page (macOS):

Do one of the following:

 

In Applications, double-click the FlowForce Server icon (note this action requires administrative privileges). The FlowForce Server setup page opens in the Web browser.

If the name of the Mac machine cannot resolve to an IP address (see Prerequisites), the browser opens a page with the following message: "FlowForceWeb does not appear to be available at http://<hostname>:<port>. Please restart it and reload this page." If you see this message, do the following:

 

a.Click the link mentioned in the message.
b.In the browser's address bar, replace <hostname> with either localhost or the IP address of your Mac.

Click the ServiceController icon ( ic-ServiceController ) in the system notification area, and then select Altova FlowForce Web > Setup.
