So I checked that the web site will receive a ping, some don't for security purposes, and it seems ok:


PING ( 56 data bytes

64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=56 time=80.280 ms

64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=56 time=76.565 ms

64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=56 time=53.358 ms


PING ( 56 data bytes

64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=56 time=17.981 ms

64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=56 time=17.399 ms

64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=56 time=86.598 ms

64 bytes from icmp_seq=3 ttl=56 time=53.091 ms

64 bytes from icmp_seq=4 ttl=56 time=54.445 ms

Try opening up a terminal on the Ensemble box and PING If that works then we know that the network is ok.

Good Luck


Apologies regarding the DNS name. I've just remembered that you're trying to get a response from '' so the DNS wouldn't have an effect. What you should check is that the Ensemble instance has access to the internet.

There isn't anything in Ensemble that will prevent access, it might be something at the O/S or network level.


Ok, so a couple of things to check:

1. When you say that you can connect from a browser but not from Ensemble, is the browser that you're using on the same computer as Ensemble?

2. Instead of a 'do httprequest.Get(...)' use 'set status=httprequest.Get(...)' and then inspect the value of 'status'. You can do 'do $system.OBJ.DisplayError(status)' in order to get a readable output. If the result is that you cannot open a TCP/IP socket then Ensemble cannot see the other computer. Otherwise the status should give you more information.

Are you addressing the other computer by its IP address or its DNS name? If you're using the DNS name then try using the IP address. If that works then edit your 'hosts' file to put the name and IP address in there and go back to using the DNS name to get to the other computer.

Let me know how you get on.
