Common Setup Issues


  1. If mobile devices are using Android OS,ensure that NTLM is enabled on the NAV service tier.
  2. The NAV SOAP Service Tier network Port must be open for the mobile devices to accces (default port 7047 but verify exact number in NAV!) - also, remember that even though a port is not blocked on the NAV server itself, the mobile devices can be connected to a "less secure" WiFi, where almost everything is blocked by default, so ensure free line of communication from mobile device to NAV server. 
  3. Disable any Software firewall on the Server (Note: should only be done for test purposes - after connection has been established, only specific port(s) used by mobile devices should be opened in firewall!)
    1. This includes Windows Firewall.
  4. If you are using a server name in the soap URL (i.e. https://mynavserver:5588) then DNS name resolution from WiFI to NAV server network must be available and working. If not, you can try substituting the server name with the IP address of the server (i.e. https://192.168.1.1:5588)

  5. Verify that the user is created in NAV both as a Mobile User and that the user is added to a Mobile Group (see installation guide https://university.taskletfactory.com for help on how to do this.)

Solution

  • You are using an older version of Mobile WMS where the object Codeunit 99999 ANSI <-> ASCII converter is faulty.



  • Make the following change



On my hosting platform "User Name" does not match "Windows User Name"

Solution

Some providers (i.e. 1ClickFactory) offers to change the "User Name" to match the "Full Name" rather than the "Windows User Name"
Currently Mobile WMS requires that the (NAV) "User Name" and "Windows User Name" fully match (excluding domain).

Have your provider change this.

  • User name should be 
    • Windows User name
      or
    • The full Email-address (Only 1ClickFactory)

  • Use "Full Name" for the actual persons name.


Error: SSL certificate failed "TrustFailure (A call to SSPI failed, see inner exception":  



Solution:

This means that the SSL certificate might have expired.

  • Check whether it has expired and If it has expired, you will need to generate a valid certificate and apply it and restart the service tier.
