DEMO/Standalone clients are supposed to be used for a Single system, and not available for Multi-User environments. But now with the advent of Web Interfaces, you can access the E9 Standalone Local Webclient from any other computer in your network. There are couple of small steps you need to follow to accomplish that.
*All steps mentioned below needs Administrator Credentials, and needs to be checked with your IT policies before opening any port or so.
- Start your E1 Demo, and go to the Web client
- Note your Port number from the address of the page. Say your web page address says http://localhost:8888/jde/E1Menu.maf; then your Port number is 8888
- Now we need to open the port on the machine you are in.
For Windows XP Machines, go to Control Panel – Windows Firewall and take the Exceptions Tab.
Enter “E9Local” in the Name, and port number to 8888. Click OK and Save the Firewall settings.
- For Windows Vista users, Open Windows Firewall by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Security, and then clicking Windows Firewall.
Follow the same options as shown above. To change scope for the port, click “Change scope”, and then click the option that you want to use. (“Scope” refers to the set of computers that can use this port opening.)
- Find the Computer name by going to Control Panel -> System, and check the Computer Name tab.
The Full computer name would be given there. Note the name; for e.g. – “MyE9Local.Atlanta.myCompany.com”
Here “MyE9Local” is the computer name and “Atlanta.myCompany.com” is the Domain.
- Now you are ready to access your E9 Web client from other computers by simply replacing the “localhost” with the computer name as shown.
http://MyE9Local:8888/jde/E1Menu.maf , if you are accessing the Demo within same network
http://MyE9Local.Atlanta.myCompany.com:8888/jde/E1Menu.maf , if you are accessing the Demo outside of the network.
- You can create as many users and give specific roles to them for login.
