Re: Connect Nprinting 17 to Qlik11 Server

Hi Ernesto,

Some things to check:

* is your engine on a different machine? You have it as qlikviewiisa

* by default you should not need to provide Username & Password for Movies Database.qvw. If you use QlikView Desktop on a client machine to access Movies Database.qvw by going to File-> Open in Server, what Server name do you enter?

* I have it working with these settings. My server & engine are both on the same machine with hostname QlikServer

Hi Sankar,

Do you use QlikView Server?

YES: make a note of the hostname of the QlikView server machine. Choose Server as the Connection Type & use the QlikView server hostname in the qvp:// field

NO: Your QVW files should be in a folder that can be accessed from remo1 by the account running NPrinting services. Choose Local as the Connection Type and enter the UNC path to the folder in the Document path field (e.g., \\remo2\documents\)

Re: Connect Nprinting 17 to Qlik11 Server

Hi Sankar,

If your two domains have a trust relationship you should be OK. Without involving NPrinting initially try this: Let's say your QlikView server is in DOMAIN1. You have QlikView Desktop on a machine in DOMAIN2. Using this QlikView Desktop (in DOMAIN2) , going to File > Open in Server can you access the QlikView applications on the server in DOMAIN1 and open documents? If not you may need to involve your System Administrator and get that working first. If you can then NPrinting in DOMAIN2 should be able to connect to the QlikView server on DOMAIN1. Remember that NPrinting Engines use QlikView Desktop to access the actual QlikView douments - that's why you need a licensed instance of QlikView Desktop installed on each NPrinting Engine machine (assuming you want to connect to QlikView documents and not only Qlik Sense documents).

HTH - Daniel.
