Re: unable to connect to http://localhost:8080/unite/

Sorry, it's far to difficult to trouble shoot an issue that there's hardly any information on. I spoke to a blackberry employee today and he informed me that this is a very scaled down version of the coming upgrades to BB unite. The time spent in troubleshooting could have been a simple OS reinstall and then install unite on a fresh PC. That would be my best advice.

Re: unable to connect to http://localhost:8080/unite/

Hello all,

 

We are investigating this issue and hope to post a solution soon, one that hopefully won't involve reinstalling the OS.

 

I want to thank everyone that has posted on this thread. As we investigate a solution, please continue to post on this topic so that everyone can benefit from the information you provide.

 

Also, there was mention in one of the posts about other applications/components that get installed with BlackBerry Unite!. If there is a component that BlackBerry Unite! requires and it is not already installed, it will notify you of the missing components and will install them during the initial installation.

 

For a complete list of components it could install, please visit

Re: unable to connect to http://localhost:8080/unite/

Just for grins and giggles try this http://127.0.0.1:8080/unite/

 

and let us know if that has any effect.

Re: unable to connect to http://localhost:8080/unite/

It seems something is botched during the web host install.  If I check IIS, no new directories or virtual sites have been created.  Also, if I try to telnet to port 8080, connection fails, so listening on that port is not even being turned on

 

BTW I'm running XP, SP2

Re: unable to connect to http://localhost:8080/unite/

We have been able to determine that this issue occurs if there is any other web server already utilizing port 8080.  In order to work around this issue users can alter the existing web server to utilize a different port or uninstall the other web server.

 

This can also happen if a user already has Apache Tomcat installed as this is what Unite! utilizes to launch the web interface.  To workaround this users would need to remove the non-Unite! version of Tomcat.

 

We are working to create solutions in BlackBerry Unite! to address this, however no timeframe is currently available for this solution.

Re: unable to connect to http://localhost:8080/unite/

pc if the above does not fix your problem check your hosts file there are programs out there that like to... well lets just say play with it to your detriment.

Re: unable to connect to http://localhost:8080/unite/

There must be something more happening to cause this error.  I don't have anything listening on port 8080, and i definitely don't have Apache installed on this particular PC.  In fact, even after the Unite install, I find no trace of Apache on my system anywhere.  I don't think Apache is being installed, despite the Unite setup successfully completing.

Re: unable to connect to http://localhost:8080/unite/

Krozar Mine didn't like XP SP2 either so i put SP3 on and it liked it but I didn't so I removed it and put it on 2k3 server and we were both happy.

 

Remember SP3 turns the firewall back on and make sure that the looback line in your hosts file is ok it should say:

 

127.0.0.1       localhost

 

and is not rem'ed out.

 

It's tough to trouble shoot a machine without seeing it.
