Hi All,

  I have heard that Local Server was made to share packages as services to local client only. Howerver, is there an option to access the services from another computer? How I can control the naming convention of local server address assignment i.e. http://127.0.0.1:port.

Many thanks for any suggestions,

Adam

Hi Adam,

No, there is not a way for LocalServer running on a client machine to be accessed by another machine. This is by design.

The LocalServer is designed to provide local capabilities to that single machine only. A Runtime app is only intended for a single user to use on that one machine.

Does this make sense?

Thanks!

Hi Eric,

  Thank you for the answer. The 'Big Picture' of ArcGIS Runtime is clear for me. I am thinking about building high availability, mission-critical solution that does not depend on any server (ArcGIS Server Instances). Can ArcGIS Runtime local server instances communicate on multiple machines ?

Regards,

Adam

No. Each instance of Local Server can only be accessed using localhost, so there isn't a way for one machine to communicate with another.
