Error when dropping the embed code on another server that does not host the iipimage server.

  • Anonymous - 2013-05-16


    I am trying to embed the code into another page on another server that does not have the iipserver. the player works fine when its hosted on the local server, however, when you put this on another server, i get this issue below:
    Error: No response from server

    is this a security issue with Lighthttpd. or is a setting i am missing.

    There is indeed a security issue, but it's not on the server, but client-side. AJAX connections to blocked by navigators to resources on other hosts. Thus, if you want to serve your HTML on, you should configure the client to point to /fcgi-bin/iipsrv.fcgi on this server, but use you web server to proxy forward requests to

    For Apache, see this for more details:

    Otherwise for Lighttpd, you could configure server1 to point /fcgi-bin/iipsrv.fcgi directly to the FCGI port on For example, on server1 you would have:

    fastcgi.server = (
    "/fcgi-bin/iipsrv.fcgi" => (
    ("host"=>"", "port"=>9000, "check-local"=>"disable")

    and on you would setup iipsrv using TCP ports rather than local sockets. For example:

    "/fcgi-bin/iipsrv-jpeg2000.fcgi" =>
    "host" => "",
    "port" => 9000,
    "check-local" => "disable",
    "min-procs" => 1,
    "max-procs" => 1,
    "bin-path" => "/var/www/localhost/fcgi-bin/iipsrv.fcgi",
    "bin-environment" => (
    "LOGFILE" => "/tmp/iipsrv.log",
    "VERBOSITY" => "5"

    where port 9000 is the standard FCGI protocol port.
