Hello, I have previously installed a J2EE policy agent and implemented SSO with it. Now I was trying to do the same with a web policy agent, but I am stuck. When I am trying to install the Apache22 web agent, I am being asked to provide some inputs. The second input is the URL of the OpenAM server. In my case, that is http://openam.example.com:9080/openIdp2 . But whenever I enter this values, the installation gets stuck. I have taken the following steps:

1. I have ensured that the openAM server is up and running.
2. I have created a centralized web agent in the openAM server.
3. I have installed OpenSSL and included the libeay32.dll, ssleay32.dll files in the agent/lib folder( I don’t have the ‘dll files missing’ error)
4. I have added the agent/lib folder in the environment variable path.

I have done all this and yet I am getting nowhere. I had used these same steps when I had configured the J2EE agent earlier. The OpenAM server is deployed in Tomcat on my local machine.

This is the configuration I am using:

Http server: Apache 2.2
Web Policy Agent:
Release: 4.0.0
Platform: Apache 2.2
OS: Windows 10 64 bit

When I tried installing using the ‘silent’ option, I was asked to provide all the input. I did that and now the console is just stuck with the ‘Validating…’ message. It has been in that way for some time. The installation doesn’t stop, it just freezes.
Can you tell me what I might be doing wrong?
Can anyone help me out?

Just to ascertain the obvious: the URL you mentioned is not actually the URL you're using, right?

Yes that is exactly the url I am using. It is an alias for localhost. The openam server is deployed on tomcat in my local machine.
Is there something wrong with that?

How can that URL be an alias for localhost? There's nothing running on example.com.

The correct URL would more likely be something like http://localhost:9080/openIdp2, if 9080 is the port you're running it on.

Yes. I have changed a setting in the 'hosts' file. Now whenever I type in openam.example.com the browser reads it as localhost.
So in essence the url is http://localhost:9080/openIdp2
