QlikView IPAD App. Connection problem with the server

Hi ,

I have a QlikView server installed on IIS. The qvajaxzfc connection is configured to allow anonymous.

When I enter the QlikView Server Address on the IPAD , I get the following message

     Error contacting the Server

Does anyone has any idea on hoe to solve that issue ?

Thanks

Philippe

What QV version? QV12 isn't compatible with the ipad apparently

I did get this working with 11.2 but it was a PITA to do, V12 is just not possible

have a read here of the various things I tried (these worked on V11)

ipad app connectivity- Can't connect to server

Re: QlikView IPAD App. Connection problem with the server

I've hit this same problem with v12.  It was working fine in v11.  Using a network trace on the traffic and viewing the Windows Event log it seems the issue is due to improved Request.Form validation in the .NET library.  I can get this to work if I disable the .NET form validation.  This article on StackOverflow covers the basics: asp.net - A potentially dangerous Request.Form value was detected from the client - Stack Overflow see the response mid way down showing the adjustments to the web.config file.  This seems to only be necessary for the QvAJAXZfc virtual directory in IIS.

Note, this is only a work around.  I don't believe it's a good idea to disable the automatic validation.  I plan to raise a support ticket with Qlik.

Nice!

We logged it with Qlik and were just told that the app isn't supported in V12

Re: QlikView IPAD App. Connection problem with the server

Just trying it on our QVWS (obviously no .net) and it does seem to connect, I get prompted for a username & password at least! (but then it fails)
