How To: Migrate ArcIMS Intranet Applications to the Internet

Summary

Instructions provided review the changes required to move ArcIMS applications from the Intranet to the Internet. There may be other issues involved, such as firewalls. See the Related Information below for links to relevant articles.

Procedure

The steps involved to migrate your ArcIMS applications to the Internet are dependent on the type of MapService and Client Viewer that you are using:

HTML VIEWERS

1. Open ArcIMS Administrator and select the Image MapService used in the HTML site.

2. Click the 'Properties' button for the selected MapService.

3. Change the Server Output HTTP Location to the fully qualified name of the machine; mymachine.esri.com, for example.

4. Click OK to submit the changed MapService properties.

5. Refresh the MapService.

6. Save your Site Configuration.

7. In your web site directory, open ArcIMSParam.js in a text editor.

8. Change the imsURL and imsOVURL variable values to use the same fully qualified machine name as in Step 3 above.

For example:

Code:

var imsURL = 'http://mymachine.esri.com/servlet/com.esri.esrimap.Esrimap?ServiceName=acetate';
var imsOVURL = 'http://mymachine.esri.com/servlet/com.esri.esrimap.Esrimap?ServiceName=acetate';


9. Save your changes.

10. Completely clear the browser cache and reload the web site.

JAVA VIEWERS

1. In your web site directory, open the default.axl file in a text editor.

2. Change the URL attribute values for the IMAGESERVERWORKSPACE and/or FEATURESERVERWORKSPACE tags to reflect the fully qualified URL.

3. Save and close the default.axl file.

4. If an Image MapService is being served in the application, you will need to change the Server Output HTTP Location in ArcIMS Administrator to use the fully qualified machine name.

5. Refresh the MapService.

6. Save your Site Configuration.

7. Completely clear the browser cache and reload the web site.
