#2477 closed defect (wontfix)

Connection errors for activity downloads in the web browser

Reported by: wronkiew Owned by: mchua pbrobinson sdz
Priority: Unspecified by Maintainer Milestone: Unspecified
Component: Sugar on a Stick (SoaS) Version: SoaS 3 (Mirabelle)
Severity: Unspecified Keywords:
Cc: Distribution/OS: Fedora
Bug Status: Unconfirmed


Maybe I just have something misconfigured here. I've set up a Mirabelle Live USB stick using the standard iso and the Windows Live USB tool. Booted up on a Dell Inspiron 8600 laptop, the web browser is able to navigate the activity index and description pages. When I try to download new activities, I get an error page saying the server, usually, cannot be found. I am able to resolve and ping the server from the terminal program. When I take the IP address from the ping output and replace the hostname in the activity URL, the download succeeds.

The laptop has both wired and wireless network interfaces. The wired interface is connected.

I'm new to this system, so I would appreciate some guidance on diagnosing this further.
