hi all.


we have a problem with forms containing webutil - they start very slow, after like a timeout, while forms without start ok.
since i think it has something to do with name resolution i'll first describe our environment.

we have an external net with users, ip range 10.48.x.x, connected to a cisco router which is resolved in that network with the name 'cro'.
so the users from that external net access us via 'http: //cro/.....'.

behind that router we have our production net, ip range 192.168.x.x, with forms-, reports- and http-servers.
external users accessing our forms server will have to klick a link "http: //cro:8888/forms......'. that way they acces the cisco router which, depending on the port (here 8888) will NAT them to the correct forms server, say http: //forms1:7778/forms....' - up to here everything works well and fast with 'normal' forms (eg. without webutil).

forms *with* webutil on the other hand take like 30-60 seconds to load from that external net (via the router) while they load fast when called from a test-client in the internal 192.168.x.x net. after searching i found
http: //www.orafaq.com/forum/mv/msg/127518/433984/0/#msg_433984
with a hint to alter the clients hosts file.

what i've found out so far is that the clients from the external 10.18.x.x net try to name resolve the *forms servers* in the internal net 192.168.x.x - i can cheat them by providing a fake hosts file which resolves the server named forms1 to the ip of the cisco router cro, but thats a temporarily and bad solution since i cant do that to real clients because i have no access to them.

so... how can i tell a webutil loaded form not to try to connect to the server they are started from (forms1) but to use the host they have been given to start from (cro)? or is there any other solution (which ofc cant include fiddling with the external net or external clients)?

well Confused

i found that its a known bug (sun bug ids: 5092063, 5116235).
oracle says upgrading to forms and webutil >=10.1.2.3 will solve the problem - we'll see.
