Post your question to a community of 469,343 developers. It's quick & easy.


I am trying to call a page on server1(development) which in turn
loads a report from another server2 (rptdb) using an iframe. The report

has links in it, on clicking which I am executing a window.open on an
absolute url on server1(development).
The problem is that the popup does not work, on IE it does not do
anything, and on Firefox it just says 'page cannot be displayed'.

Now, if I move my report from server2(rptdb) to server1(development)
then the pop up works fine.
Here are the 2 links for testing:
a) http://development.webmetro.com/DSMM...st_remote.html
Here I am loading the iframe from rptdb server.
b) http://development.webmetro.com/DSMM...est_local.html
Here I am loading the iframe from development server.
Does anyone know whats happening here.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Looking at
http://development.webmetro.com/DSMM...est_local.html, I see the
iframe references
http://development.webmetro.com/dsmm...mm/report.html. This proves
to be a valid URL.

However with
http://development.webmetro.com/DSMM...st_remote.html, the
iframe calls http://rptdb.webmetro.com/report.html. When I try to do a
simple nslookup on rptdb.webmetro.com, I get non-existent domain. Is it
an intranet site, or is it just not set up on your DNS?

Thanks Scott for the reply. I'll check this up and let you know if that
was the problem.

Hi Scott,

Thanks for the reply. I am sorry for the DNS
resolution issue with rptdb.webmetro.com. It is fixed now and you can
see what the real problem is.

Thanks again,

In the report.html file the href link has TARGET="_top" change it to
TARGET="_self". This should fix your issue.

Refer to: http://www.w3schools.com/htmldom/met_win_open.asp

You may also want to browse your site using Firefox or another gecko
based browser; the report in the iframe does not look to friendly.

I also forgot to mention in the window.open you have extra data:

"...popup.html?keywordID=52',null,%20'height=700.. ."

Remove the %20

"...popup.html?keywordID=52',null,'height=700. .."

Scott, changing TARGET="_top" to TARGET="_self" solved the problem.
Thanks a lot for that :). But why will "_top" work on the same server
but not on a different server?
Also, thanks for pointing out the errors in the popup link.
