CONFIGURING WEB BROWSERS FOR WEB CLIENT OPERATION

This chapter covers configuration of web browsers that is required for web client operation.

8.1. GENERAL SETUP

If the computer the web client runs on has any software running that blocks web browser windows from opening or HTTP-queries from sending, the respective websites (infobase URLs) should be added to the exception lists.

8.2.                  MOZILLA FIREFOX

8.2.1. Connection Setup

First implement the following settings:

„ Start up the web browser.

„ Open the options window: Firefox – Tools – Options.

„ This opens the window from where you must go to the Content section and implement the following settings:

     Check the Enable JavaScript box;

Check the Load images automatically box. When doing this, make sure that the required web sites (infobase addresses) are not included in the exception list in the Block status.

„ Go to the Privacy section and do the following:

     Set the Firefox will parameter values to Remember history or Use custom settings for history in the History group.

If the Use custom settings for history value is selected, check Accept cookies from sites checkbox. When doing this, make sure that any required web sites (infobase addresses) are not included in the exception list in the Block status.

To ensure that the web client works properly when an unlocalized version of Mozilla Firefox is used, do the following (menu item names are provided according to the English version):

„ Open your web browser.

„ Open the setup window: Firefox – Tools – Options.

„ Click the Advanced button in the Fonts & Colors group of the Content section.

„ Select Unicode in the Default Character Encoding parameter.

We recommend that you enable query for the saved file location. To do this:

„ Open your web browser.

„ Open the setup window: Firefox – Tools – Options.

„ Select Always ask me where to save files in the General section.

To work in Mozilla Firefox, we recommend that you enable 1C:Enterprise Extension; you are then prompted to "install now" when you first attempt to access the 1C:Enterprise infobase, and it can be installed later by means of the Tools – Web Browser Setup command.

Fig. 68. Prompt for browser extension installation

This will establish the settings required for system operation:

„ pop-up windows on a page will be allowed;

„ switching between application windows will be allowed;

„ non-Latin characters in startup command line options will be allowed;

„ keyboard commands for switching between application windows will be allowed;

„ file operation extensions, cryptography extensions, and external components will be available. Extensions and external components will be available provided that the 1C:Enterprise Extension web browser extension is installed.

When working with the extension disabled, you can perform a number of settings manually:

„ Open your web browser.

„ Enable pop-up windows:

     Open the options window: Firefox – Tools – Options.

This opens the window, where you go to the Content section.

Uncheck Block pop-up windows.

„ To allow switching between application windows by using keyboard commands:

     Enter about:config in the web browser address bar.

Find the dom.disable_window_flip parameter.

Set the parameter to false.

Find the parameter dom.popup_allowed_events.

Add the keydown event to the value of this setting (use a space to separate it from other parameters).

„ To allow non-Latin characters in the startup command line options:

     Enter about:config in the web browser address bar.

Find the network.standard-url.encode-query-utf8 parameter or, if the network. standard-url.encode-query-utf8 cannot be found, the browser.fixup.use-utf8 parameter.

Set the parameter to true.

8.2.2. Automatic Authentication

It is possible to configure the web browser to use automatic operating system authentication for Mozilla Firefox.

These settings may also be enabled manually:

„ Open your web browser.

„ Type about:config in the browser address bar.

„ Type the name of the parameter in the search field of the settings page.

This setting is applied to three parameters:

network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris,

A specific network and web server configuration may require setting the network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris and network.negotiate-auth.delegationuris parameters.

„ Next you should specify a list of web servers to work with the 1C:Enterprise base.

For details about this feature, see the article at: https://developer.mozilla.org/En/ Integrated_Authentication.

The description of the above parameters functions when different authentication tools are used is provided below:

„ The web server supports NTLM authentication.

If the web server attempted to be connected to is listed in the network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris parameter names, automatic authentication will be attempted. If the web server is not listed, the browser will display a dialog to enter user login and password to access the web server.

„ The web server supports Kerberos authentication.

To access the web server using this authentication type, add the web server name to the parameter network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris. This will be sufficient for file infobase. When client/server 1C:Enterprise version is used and automatic authentication is required for web client users, add the DNS Name of this web server to the parameter network.negotiate-auth.delegation-uris. If the accessed web server name cannot be found in the network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris parameter, authentication will not be carried out and the user will see the following error message displayed: 401 Unauthorized. The administrator can modify the 401 error page to display the information on the suggested actions for a user (see the documentation for the web server used).

„ Use of External Components, the Clipboard, File System Extensions and Cryptography Extensions and Switching Windows from the Keyboard.

8.3. MICROSOFT INTERNET EXPLORER

For web client operation under Windows XP SP 2, jscript.dll system library should be present, version 5.6.0.8834 or later. The library is located in the system32 directory of the operating system. If you have an earlier version of the library installed on your computer, web client performance could be significantly slower. To update the version, you will need to download the update pack available at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/942840/en-us.

NOTE

At first launch of the web client under Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0, an alert will appear stating that the web browser’s performance may be low. Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 and later or another web browser is then recommended (see page 18).

8.3.1. Connection Setup

Perform the following settings to start operation:

„ Launch a web browser.

„ Select Internet options in the Tools menu.

Enable JavaScript:

□ On the Security tab, for the Internet zone click the Custom level button.

       In the Scripting section, set the Active scripting parameter to Enable and click OK.

       Click OK.

Enable pop-up windows:

□ Go to the Privacy tab.

□ In the Pop-up Blocker section, uncheck Block Pop-ups.

Script ActiveX controls marked safe for scripting

Every time an auxiliary window is opened, the keyboard layout is selected based on the operating system settings. If the layout does not match the data entry language, you will need to specify the input language in the settings to avoid switching between languages. To set a default entry language:

1.     Open the Regional and Languages Options section of the operating system.

2.     On the Languages tab, in the Text services and input languages section click Details...

3.     In the window that opens, on the Settings tab, in the Default input language section, select the language you need.

4.     Click OK.

In Internet Explorer 8, navigating to an open window may display a dialog reading "Click OK to navigate to the window". This dialog also contains the OK button. When you click on this button, you will navigate to the window.

ActiveX may also be set up with the help of the ActiveX installation service (for Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, and Windows Server 2008 R2).
