Step #4: MBI Testing
1. Test the MBI connection on the server first
Open up a web browser on the MBI server itself and enter the URL to the AyaNovaMBI login page
Enter in the path http://localhost/AyaNovaMBI/ if you have not specified a port or http://localhost:XXXX/AyaNovaMBI/ where XXXX is the TCP Port number of your Default Web Site on this WBI server if you have specified a port other than the default of 80
Confirm you can bring up the MBI login screen
Confirm you can log in using a valid AyaNova schedulable user username and password
Also test entering in this local computer's IP address instead of localhost
For example, if the local area IP address is 192.168.1.100 and the TCP Port number of your Default Web Site of IIS is 9632, you would enter in the URL address line in the web browser on the WBI server itself http://192.168.1.100:9632/AyaNovaMBI/
If the MBI login screen does not display, double-check all previous steps right from the beginning.
2. Test on a local network computer:
Open up a web browser on a computer on the same internal network as the MBI server
Enter in the path http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:XXXX/AyaNovaMBI/ where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the local area connection IP address of the MBI server and XXXX is the TCP Port number of the Default Web Site on the WBI server
For example, if I installed MBI to a computer on my network that has an internal IP address of 192.168.1.100, and the TCP Port of the Default Web Site on this computer is 9632, I would enter in http://192.168.1.100:9632/AyaNovaMBI/ as the URL address.
If the MBI login screen does not display, but it did in the first test on the server itself above, you may be entering an incorrect local IP address for the MBI server; or the MBI server's operating system may have a firewall enabled that is preventing access.
3. Test via a remote mobile Internet connection:
On a remote device that is connected to the Internet, open up a compatible web browser
Enter in the path http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:XXXX/AyaNovaMBI/ where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the IP address of your router and XXXX is the forward port you have configured on your router (which is also the same as the TCP Port number of the Default Web Site on the WBI server)
For example, if the router's static IP address is 222.333.777.12 and the forwarded port configured for the IP address 192.168.1.100 that I set up in the router's configuration is (and that is also the TCP Port for the Default Web Site) is 9632, I would enter http://222.333.777.12:9632/AyaNovaMBI/ into the web browser URL address.
If the MBI login screen does not display, but it did in the first two tests above, you may not have configured your router correctly. Review and edit your configuration - don't forget to reset after.
