Does anyone know the name of the Qlik NPrinting repository database? For example in QlikSense the name is QSR. Actually I am able to querying the QSR database, I would like to make the same with NPrinting.
A lot of Thanks lech_miszkiewicz I have successfully connected to the NPrinting Repository database. Do you know if that database contain the information of the objects you read from QlikSense (Charts, Tables, etc.)?
I'm trying to connect to the database the same way you did, I can however not access it from our Sense server. I've made sure that the two servers (Sense and NP) are on the same VLAN and there is no firewall inbetween them but I cannot access the database.
Do you need to change any config file or anything to be able to access postgres from another server?
Do you have any guide or anything similar for this?
I have no documentation or anything - sorry. I did not do any changes to config files - just pure vanila NP and QS connection setup.
I just figured the connection details based on connection to to postgres QRS DB. So i tried couple of users, passwords, i looked in help document how the other services are communicating to repository to figure out port etc... and finally i manged to get it working.
are you able to install sense desktop on NPrinting Box just to try it localy with "localhost" so you would get figured whether it works (password user etc...) ?
cheers Lech, When applicable please mark the correct/appropriate replies as "solution" (you can mark up to 3 "solutions". Please LIKE threads if the provided solution is helpful to the problem.
The issue here is that I have NPrinting installed on a server, and Sense Desktop cannot be installed on a server OS.
My main issue is that I cannot make a connection towards the NPrinting database, when I try to telnet the server on port 4992 I get a connection error, even though I have disabled firewalls and made sure that the two servers are on the same network. I think I might have read something about that you need to alter some config files in the Sense installation if you want any other IP than the localhost to make connections towards it, that's why I thought you needed to do the same in the NPrinting environment.
How does your setup look like? NP and Sense Desktop installed on a Windows client OS?
I have been trying to connect nPrinting to Qlik Sense using the manner described in the above postings re PostgreSQL. I cannot connect unfortunately. We have nPrinting on 1 server and Sense on another…..and we can connect to nPrinting with telnet using localhost and 4992, we just can't access nPrinting from the Sense server. The firewall is off during testing. The error is per attached picture.
Specifically on the username and password for the PostgreSQL connection, which username and password should it be, the one used when you log in to nPrinting, or an admin password? I am not the admin, but none of the others I have have worked.
If anyone can maybe make a suggestion as to how to trouble shoot this I would appreciate it.
