    ArcGIS Viewer for Silverlight-applications doesn???t access the services of server

    WVE54
      I am currently using ArcGIS Viewer for Silverlight to develop web applications. All application developed so far are very nice and accessible on our intranet. The problem emerged now is during   we access the applications on internet. Though I have both a client access and a cross domain at my root (???\wwwroot ) doesn???t access the services we have on our GIS server except the base map from ESRI.
      Any body with solution?
      I thank you !!!

          Hello Berhanu,

          Can you try navigating to your service in a regular browser? Does that work? And can you try adding it to either ArcGIS Explorer online or an ArcGIS Online map? Try those first just to test.

              I have the same problem.  I can add services from my ArcGIS server locally.  But doesn't work externally on the internet.  I need to be able to replace my internal server name with an external IP address so I can access it from the internet.

                Hi Berhanu,

                Based on your comments, this sounds like a "firewall/security access" issue. Your ArcGIS Server web services cannot be accessed by web clients outside of your intranet domain. I would check with your IT systems folks to verify if they can be accessed externally (e.g., outside of your intranet domain).

                Hope this helps,

                    I have the exact same issue.

                    The map services I have running display fine locally - the services page displays when the URL is loaded in a browser, they also uploaded to arcgis.com and are accessable there, as well as in argis explorer online.

                    So - the services are running fine and accessible from the outside, but in the silverlight viewer I get nothing, no connection, no layers. I've tried cutting and pasting the URL from the services directory and other various path names, but nothing has worked.

                      I accessed the link you referenced and it opens a Web ADF application - but I don't see a table of contents for any data layers and when I click on the map display, I get a "no features found" message. I think there is only a basemap displayed and I don't think this site is working properly, can you please double-check?

                      Have you tried to view the HTTP request and response using a standard tool for interrogating HTTP communication such as Fiddler, Silverlight Spy, FireBug (FireFox add-on) in your web browser? What kind of messaging is reported?

                      Hope this helps,

                          I solved the problem by editing the Map.xml. C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\Apps\...\Config. That is, changing the server�??s domain name of paths of my services by IP address of my server.

                          I have an other very serious issue. I really prefer having of some more tools that are out of the box and  make life easier to work with in ArcGIS viewer for Silverlight. For example a tool that search data based on fields like the basic tools we have in ArcGIS Server. To me these are basic tools and I expect from such out of box application and I went ESRI to know and come with solution otherwise is frustrating for non programmer users like me.
                          Thank you for the support !!!!

                            Thanks for the feedback regarding a Search tool. You are not alone in this request. :-)

                            One of the things you can do is go to our Ideas site and vote/add entries as desired. For example, someone has already started an Idea you can "Promote" for [url=http://ideas.arcgis.com/ideaView?id=08730000000buwEAAQ]More practical tools for Silverlight Viewer[/url].

                              Has this issue been resolved? I'm experiencing the same thing with Silverlight Viewer 3.1. Continues to not read my coded values.
