I want to use Xibo with stateless windows clients:
My client boots a Windows 7 image with installed Xibo player (200-200) over the network.
This image is fresh on each reboot. On boot, a
hardwarekey is generated automatically (SHA1 of the physical MAC-address, so it is always the same) and copied to the default library location (
c:\users\xibo\documents\xibo library\). The folder is empty despite the
There is a
XiboClient.xml file in
%APPDATA% file with the correct server url, server key and default library path.
The display is automatically authorised at first boot.
Most of the time this actually works, but just sometimes the client won’t show any layouts, and only show the splashscreen. Sometimes it will take a few minutes to start showing layouts, sometimes it never will.
The log then shows a lot of
Web Exception in Run: The remote server returned an error: (404) Not Found
The Webserver is reachable, using a browser I can access
http://<server>/xmds.php, but when using parameters like
requiredFiles.xml), it gives 404.
If it works (as I said, sometimes it just works) the links from
requiredFilex.xml work,and I can download files from the Server.
XMR-status on the client is “Connected”, in both scenarios.
The server is a docker 2.0.0 installation, out of the box (Ubuntu). (The problem was exactly the same in 1.8.2).
