Title: Mobile Signage Controller
Post by: unununium on August 08, 2011, 10:15:02 AM
I have noticed that browsing to http://master.my-domain.com on my MediaSERVER redirects me to https://master.signage.me/MasterServer/MobileLogin.aspx. Further, I can access my local version of the Mobile Signage Controller by browsing to http://master.my-domain.com/WebService/MobileLogin.aspx, but attempting to enter credentials in the username and password boxes on that site results in errors.

Three questions:
-Why does http://master.my-domain.com redirect to the signage.me site?
-How do I prevent this redirection? It is confusing to users and does not seem to serve any purpose.
-What is the Mobile Signage Controller and should I be concerned that it is not working on my MediaSERVER?

You must gave mis-configured the domain as it should not point to us
And as for the MobileController, it will be supported on the private mediaSERVER later this year.

Thanks for the info about the Mobile Controller. It seems like it will be a great feature when it is available.

Regarding the redirect issue, I don't believe it is misconfigured DNS... that would not cause a browser redirect. After some digging in your application's code, it seems the redirect is called in the Default.aspx.cs file located at C:\WebServers\Master\HomeDirectory\Default.aspx.cs

The code is as follows:
--------------------------------------
using System;
using System.Data;
using System.Configuration;
using System.Collections;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.Security;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts;
using System.Web.UI.HtmlControls;

public partial class _Default : System.Web.UI.Page
{
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        Response.Redirect("https://master.signage.me/MasterServer/MobileLogin.aspx");
    }
}
--------------------------------------

The relevant portion being "Response.Redirect("https://master.signage.me/MasterServer/MobileLogin.aspx")". Further investigation revealed that this is also the case (virtually identical code) for the Business site as well. Can I assume that this is a holdover from your cloud offering? I would like to remove this redirect rule if possible or point it to my own domain.

ok thx for the heads up, I will open a bug for this, and i think you should be able to modify the code manually for now no?

Yes, I've already changed it. I just wanted to be sure it wasn't going to cause problems elsewhere. Thanks!
