Rooky- needs help with streaming via http RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    at first sorry if this is not an appropriate way or not the right part for my question. I really appreciate help with this problem because i am running out of time. I am writing on a very important paper for my studying and i have chosen the topic application virtualization with App-V. For my study i have installed the App-V 4.5 in a virtual environment to play with all functionalities. I got to run the whole Management Server infrastructure with Sql server and active directory and the branch solution with the additional streaming server. What i use is a shared folder on the management server as content folder and stream the .sft,osd and icon files out of this folder via RSTP.

    My question is now how do i have to change my configuration to stream the applications via http or https? On the client site i just can specify the server and nothing else. I have some understanding problems with this approach. When i connect to the Management server via RSTP connection then the management server is responsible to inform the client which applications i get and which i am are allowed to excecute or not? if i just connect to the e.g. http://iisappserver:80/content then who is doing the management part? I was going again through the streaming process to figure out if i might have forgotten something but i couldn't find anything beside the protocoll and the destination the package will be stored later. I installed the IIS 6 on a win 2003 R2 server and added the mime types for the folders but when i connect with the Client to it (like i wrote by just creating a new publishing server on the client and then add the http:location:80/content/) i get an incorrect function error message back.

    Could somebody help me with this isue? My problem is that i do not really understand how that should work because in all papers, white papers and web sites it is just mentioned that it is possible... but i couldn't really find anywhere how to setup it up.

    If somebody could explain that to me or just give me some sources that would be highest appriciated.

    Thanks in advance.
