IWP and browser cookie problem?
Has anyone ran into issues with the IWP home page the FM publishes, and browser cookies? We have a DB that was put up on the web and ran into a problem with certain browsers (both on Win and Mac, Firefox & Safari). The user enters the main home page address and is presented with a list of databases to log into. The issue is that when a user clicks on the DB to log into, on the browsers with problems it enteres an infinite loop where it just takes you back to the 'Select a DB' page. Browsers without problems, of course, take you right to the login page. Interestingly, it appears that IE (on Win, of course) DOESN'T have issues.
Specifically, we had failures in:
Mac - Safari (various versions)
Win - Firefox (at least v8)
But Firefox on the Mac worked fine. And, as mentioned, the others worked OK if you turned cookies off. And IE 8 and 9 worked OK on Win.
We would like to be able to think that this is not going to be a problem so would like to better understand what causes the issue.
Replying to my own post. Apparently this isn't too much of an issue for folks...
This problem is still going on with FMS 12, apparently. We have folks that try to log in, but end up on a completely blank white browser page. Their accounts don't show up in the 'Client' list when you look at the FMServer app interface.
Anyone have some experience with this?
