Troubleshooting Recorder OWS Connections

Below are the URLS needed to verify OWS connections are possible

These URLs can be used to verify that firewall and front-end security devices are setup correctly for the recorder to connect to OWS.

  • These checks must be done from the recorder locally.
  • URLs are to be entered into a browser like Chrome, Chromium, or IE.
  • Please note that in many cases, you will receive a 404 Error; this is expected and a good result.
  • Any other errors like SSL, DNS, or Firewall Restrictions will need to be investigated.

Verify connectivity to key URLs from a web browser on the recorder. Check to see if you received the expected response below.

Please cut and paste the below URLs into a browser on the recorder:
