A number of components provided with ECT can make use of a connection to the web. Examples are SimpleMediaViewer (allows you to view web-pages) and RSSClient (allows you to access RSS feeds). If your web-access is through a web-cache/web-proxy then you will need to provide ECT with the details of these caches/proxies before these components can work properly.
The exact method by which you do this depends upon whether you are starting ECT via Method 1 or Method 2.
Open up the runWebstart.bat batch file. You will see a number of lines that look something like this:
set ECT_PROXY_SETTINGS=-DproxySet=false rem set ECT_PROXY_SETTINGS=-DproxySet=true rem set ECT_PROXY_SETTINGS=%ECT_PROXY_SETTINGS% -DproxyHost=wwwcache.cs.nott.ac.uk rem set ECT_PROXY_SETTINGS=%ECT_PROXY_SETTINGS% -D3128 rem set ECT_PROXY_SETTINGS=%ECT_PROXY_SETTINGS% -Dhttp.proxyHost=wwwcache.cs.nott.ac.uk rem set ECT_PROXY_SETTINGS=%ECT_PROXY_SETTINGS% -Dhttp.proxyPort=3128 rem set ECT_PROXY_SETTINGS=%ECT_PROXY_SETTINGS% -Dhttp.nonProxyHost="localhost|128.243.*"
Modify these lines so that they reflect the details of your web-cache/web-proxy. Hint -
-DproxyHost=<address of your web-proxy>
Follow the same procedure as for method 1 above, but instead modify the runExporterGUI.bat file in directory scripts. See file runExporterGUINotts.bat for an example.
