Find or Change web server root directory in rt target


Hello, I'm currently following the NI Tutorial to setup a Remote Panel on RT Target, I managed to set up just as the tutorial indicates but when I'm trying to access the VI I can´t find it.


Here is my configuration:

The IP address of cRio is :

Remote Panel Port: 8000

System Web Server Port: 80

The vi configured as startup is:

I created html file using Web Publishing Tool. The file is: maletines.html

I created a destination path called: "www" located in:  /c/ni-rt/system/www


The result is the following:


When I access: it displays config screen ok.

Web Config


When I access:  The labview web server tutorial is displayed


When I try to access my html file as:

It does not show anything.


Does anyone know anything I can do to fix this? Next there are some images of my configuration:


RT Properties Web Server

As you can see there is no Web Server Path to configure...


Web Publishing Tool HTML


RT Application Source Files

RT Application Destinations


Thank you in advance.

Your snapshot of the webserver publishing tool shows the local directory to save webpage as a directory on the PC folder system. I believe this html file should be saved on the rt target just like the other VIs.

The Configuring Remote Front Panels on a Real-Time Target document that was linked says "Change the Destination path to c:\ni-rt\system\www on a PharLap or VxWorks Target or /var/local/natinst/labview/www on a Linux RT target"


If you are using Linux RT you should try placing the html file in the /var/local/natinst/labview/www directory instead. Maybe that will do the trick! Smiley Happy

Hello MilanR, thank you for your answer, that´s right. the error was that my cRio is Linux based and I was using Windows path to locate the html file on the RT Target.


Best Regards.

The published directory works fine when deployed, but if you try to copy it from the host to the target it causes a 500 error. (access denied type error)


How do I avoid this error?
