    Hi,

    It worked in the beginning. Due to a lot of other work I had to pause building a MIS System.

    Connecting to a local Palo Server is running well.

    Do you have any hints for me ?

    Thanx in Advance.

  • RE: Error connection Excel Client with Linux Server

    Hallo,

    I uninstalled palo on windows and linux, and installed the actual version.

    Once again, local is working ... connecting on my linux server not.

    Different on first view is:


    Parameter name: '5' is not a valid value for 'index'.

    which was '4' before.


    See the end of this message for details on invoking
    just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

    Try using Palo Wizard to unregister all the servers and then re-add only those that are realy in use.

    Done ... same again, but with "Parameter name: '1' is not a valid value for 'index'."

    ************** JIT Debugging **************
    To enable just in time (JIT) debugging, the config file for this
    application or machine (machine.config) must have the
    jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
    The application must also be compiled with debugging
    enabled.

    For example:

    <configuration>
    <system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
    </configuration>

    When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
    will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the machine
    rather than being handled by this dialog.



  • Hi!
    Well as far as I can see from log files ... client and server are not compatible / do not use the same protocol version ... either you are running outdated version of server ... or the ZIP file with Linux binary version that we have on our website contains wrong version(which is unlikely) ... I will check this once more ...
    Mit freundlichen Gruessen/ With kind Regards / Meilleures salutations

    Oh, or maybe my proxyserver didn't forward the actual version, maybe he forwarded me the file in the cache.

    I will check this.

  • Hi,

    I downloaded the linux server and the windows client/server from your homepage directly, without using my proxy.

    Installation went fine, but the error stays.

    I will try this all at home in the evening. Maye something is wrong with my system ... config, registry ... who knows. ?(

    I will report

  • Hi,

    so, I had time to play with palo again. Strange things (for me) are happening here ;)

    I unregistered the palo server, and registered again. After that I created a new database, and connected to the server. I saw my database "test" but not the "Demo".

    I stoped palo on my linux server, copied the database via scp from windows to linux, and restarded palo. After trying to connect to the linux server I got the same error again.

    Looks like you are experiencing problem simmilar to this one described here:

    forum.palo.net/addreply.php?postid=627

    There is a fix for this but still not available in public downloads. As soon as we collect all the changes we will release new updated version.


    Yes, it seems so.

    I will wait for that update. Until that ... I can use the windows server which is not really a problem due to its only me who is using palo at the moment.
